Artist Residency Project- Brashear High School

I am so grateful that I had the chance to be a Residency Artist with Brashear High School’s Fiber Art students!

This project was a collaboration between myself and fellow artist Rose Clancy. We worked with high school students at Brashear High School, art teacher Jennie Canning and the Fiberarts Guild of Pittsburgh’s outreach endeavor, Pop des Fleurs.

Students worked with a myriad of materials and processes, including rusting, shibori fabric dyeing, sewing, assemblage, outdoor art installation planning and exhibition and more!

The finished art piece and documentation of our process can be seen at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts thru July 31 in conjunction with the Fiberart International.

Next up on my Resident Artist agenda is a 3.5 month project at POWER, Pittsburgh Organization for Women in Early Recovery! This project has been in the works for 3+ years, so I am extra excited to be starting in late June 2016.
