Please join us on Saturday, April 6, from 2:00 to 4:00 PM, for a talk by the artists featured in our #stitchers exhibition!
Gallery 263 is excited to present our latest Exhibition Proposal Series show, #stitchers. This exhibition features six women artists from around the world who met on the social media platform Instagram. In their practices, the artists investigate what it means to elevate the traditional medium of hand embroidery in the context of the fine arts community, and how their art can be accessible and inspire others on social media. Through the exploration of incorporating multimedia elements into their embroidery and the act of depicting deeply personal narratives — such as gender assumptions, family stories, and more — these artists are challenging the notion of embroidery as a pastime craft.
On View: March 21 – April 20, 2019
Artist Demo: Tuesday, April 2, 6-8PM
Artist Talk: Saturday, April 6, 2-4PM
