Join us for an exclusive tour of A Beautiful Mess (Weavers and Knotters of the Vanguard) with Emilee Enders, Curator of Exhibitions and Programs at the Bedford Gallery.
From micro artworks the size of a hand to mammoth room-sized installations, the national roster of women artists in A Beautiful Mess pushes the boundaries of their textile-based medium. Using rope, yarn, clay and wire, these conceptual artists knot and twist their media into sculptures that range from minimal and hyper-organized to utter pandemonium. They explore personal and political ideals — order and chaos to the extreme — and freely break the rules to create their beautiful artworks. Serious about making a strong cultural and intellectual impact, this group deftly weaves their message into works that demonstrate extraordinary technical skill.
