Artist’s Talk: Terrie Mangat
Terrie Mangat has been involved with fabric art since she first picked up a needle at the age of nine at a Singer sewing school in her native Kentucky. Mangat has exhibited her quilts in solo and group shows around the country and internationally. As curator Carolyn Ducy has written, she is “recognized for her innovative use of embellishment….The layering of many elements results in quilts that are expressive and active and funny and startling.”
Terrie will talk about her background, her influences, and the many directions in which her long and wide-ranging career has taken her. The talk will be about an hour, with visuals and a question-and-answer period afterward.
Sunday, March 3, at 2 p.m.
Conversation with a Curator: Jennie Kiessling with Michelle Cooke
Santa Fe-based artist Jennie Kiessling will discuss the family history behind her rigorously abstract series of assemblages, which are made from the most basic materials—shopping bags, tape, pencil, and gouache. The pieces in the Project Space, shown here and called “when the night is not blue,” are a kind of diary of the ongoing devastation in Gaza. Earlier works are inspired by handmade texts from her grandfather, and all her recent endeavors allude to the “role of abstraction in thinking about the world.” Questions and answers after, of course.
As with all our events, this one’s free, but please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can get a head count.
