As Pleasurable, Lush, Utilitarian, Subjects of Humanity, PLUSH is a tactile mindscape. Textiles are inherently connected to the domestic environment. In the U.S., fiber art has often been mislabeled as craft or “women’s work.” However, in many countries, textile is considered men’s labor.
The Art and Culture Center/Hollywood and Artspace New Haven are dedicating their gallery windows to a slowly unfolding postcard correspondence between Connecticut-based artist Margaret Roleke and Broward-based artist Lisa Rockford. As postcards arrive, Center Curator Laura Marsh and Artspace Curator Sarah Fritchey will add each correspondence to a grid that will eventually create one image that reflects the current political climate.
Contemporary visual artist Charley Friedman offers a survey of humorous, family-friendly sculptures, photographs, videos, drawings, and installations. Visitors can create their own works based on exhibition themes in the Interactive Art Room.
