ALL EVENTS


current art show

The Weaving Mill

Containers

Elastic Arts is pleased to announce Containers, an exhibition and residency by The Weaving Mill, showing June 1st – August 25th.

 

The Weaving Mill’s exhibition will consist of drawings, paintings, fabric, and text exploring subjects like permutation, animation, and sequence, gradation versus constants, and the visibility of process.

 

Over the course of the exhibition, The Weaving Mill will host a series of events centered around the exhibition’s central questions: Where do you start? Where do you stop? When does scale begin to matter? What are your tools and what are the terms? Who’s looking for what?  Events include short film screenings, open studios, and artist talks.

 

The Weaving Mill is the collaborative studio of Matti Sloman and Emily Winter. Matti Sloman (b. 1985) received her MFA in Textiles and a BFA in Painting from Rhode Island School of Design. Emily Winter (b. 1987) received her MFA in Textiles from Rhode Island School of Design and a BA in History from University of Chicago. Working with people of diverse textile experience, The Weaving Mill aims to fill the space between the hand and industrially made and bring the mechanics of textile production into wider view.
