Contemporary Textile Exhibit Interwoven Features Work by Three Artists at Florida Tech Funk Center; Opens Sept. 10
MELBOURNE, FLA.—Interwoven, showcasing the work of three contemporary fabric artists, opens Sept. 10 at the Ruth Funk Center for Textile Arts on the Florida Institute of Technology campus. Interwoven runs through Dec. 17.
The exhibit features the work of Alejandrina Cué, Andrea Donnelly and Jennifer Glass, artists whose visual imagery exploits the inherent quality of fabric materials to portray both the fragility and depth of the human psyche.
Cué, from Cuba, creates surrealist collages assembled from found or saved textiles, re-appropriating traditional female skills such as embroidery, crochet and quilting. Donnelly, of Richmond, Va., is a weaver who creates large-scale warp- and weft-dyed installations, referencing the body and its emotional connections. On display by Glass, a native Floridian, is a series of haunting, large-scale prints on canvas that question historical ideals of femininity and fashion.
Regular hours for the Funk Center are Tuesday to Friday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday, from noon to 4 p.m. It is located on the Florida Tech campus in Melbourne at 150 W. University Blvd. Admission is free.
