Grad student exhibit textile art this week
Tuesday, January 29, 2013
Hand and Dyepot, an exhibit of original textile and apparel art designed by graduate students, opens Jan. 28. Students used natural dyes and earth pigments, a more environmentally sustainable option for coloration than traditional dye processes.
The week-long exhibit explores cultural, elemental, and environmental themes using apparel design, ceramics and textile surface design. The display is in the Graduate Space Gallery room 118 on the second floor of Willard Hall and is open daily from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Participating artists are Hayat Albloushy, apparel, textiles and interior design; Lauren Karle, ceramics; Ying Ma, electrical and computer engineering; Erin Monfort-Nelson, apparel, textiles and interior design; and Grit Vece, adult education.
Faculty mentor is Sherry Haar, department of apparel, textiles and interior design, College of Human Ecology. All garments and textile art were created for partial fulfillment of AT800: Surface Design.
The event is sponsored by the Apparel and Textile Graduate Student Organization.
