“Unexpected Weavings”

An artist talk “How it’s made: Unexpected Weavings,” will be on Tuesday July 8th at 6:30pm by SDA member, Dorothy McGuinness to coincide with her solo show at the Jansen Art Center.  Dorothy will discuss her unique process of weaving forms and structures through the art of diagonal twill.  Dorothy approaches her work as a puzzle, which drives her to discover new shapes and weaving innovations using watercolor paper, painted and cut into very narrow uniform strips to build unique and intriguing forms that are encoded with energy and elegance.
