The weaver, knitter and felt-maker work with their hands, and make a new fabric as they cross their threads. A new fabric telling a new story!

Donegan and Rigby take the beauty of the traditional crafts of lacemaking and felting and translate them into 21st century contemporary art.

Their work is very much about the process.  The work is ethereal and seems fragile, but the underlying structure – the Crossed Threads – gives it strength. A metaphor for our bodies and our world. Their materials and methods evoke the past and the present, memories of events, people and places. Coded words and marks keep thoughts private, while the viewer can make his or her own interpretation.

Artist Talk, Thursday July 16, 7 pm

You are invited to come and join in the conversation with the talented fiber artists Maura Donegan and Lynne Rigby, as they take you on their journey of personal narratives behind the technique, development, and process of creating their unique work.
