ARTIST TALK: Cheryl Lawrence on Democracy in Action and the Art of Katazome

Free – $8

 

ARTIST TALK: Cheryl Lawrence on Democracy in Action and the Art of Katazome

On Wednesday, November 6 at 6:30pm, textile artist Cheryl Lawrence from Whidbey Island, Washington will offer an artist talk to mark the opening of her exhibit, Democracy in Action: Celebrating the Women of the 116th Congress, at the Mariposa.

Lawrence specializes in both natural dyeing and katazome, a Japanese style of stencil dyeing. She will speak about her latest project – on display at the Mariposa from November 5, 2019 to January 5, 2020 – which combines her political, personal and artistic interests. Her talk will focus on the genesis of the project, the puzzle pieces that came together in its creation, and specifics of the art of katazome.

Democracy In Action features portrait stencils of the 131 women currently serving in the 116th Congress – an unprecedented number of women. Lawrence believes that art, in every form, can begin conversations and open our hearts and minds as well as make meaningful connections between people.

She writes: “My recently completed textile project is both an homage and a call to arms that celebrates the historic number of 131 brave and powerful women currently serving in the 116th Congress. These women, whatever their political views and personal values, have the courage to be seen, the courage to be heard, the courage to try to make a difference.”

This event is free for Mariposa members. Regular museum admission for nonmembers ($8 for adults, $6 for seniors). Please scroll down to purchase tickets or RSVP.
