A talk by Margery Winter. Begins at 7:30 p.m.; ends at 8:15.
In the artist's words: Being an artist and holding a family together while navigating a commercial world caused me to take unexpected detours. These divergences were rich with imagery, materials and inspiration. Though I was paid for my vision, style, editorial focus, creativity and trend spotting skills, my hands were never idle. I now spend my days in my studio using the skills and materials that I have mastered over the past four decades of a commercial career in the handknitting yarn industry. The present is arguably the most fulfilling chapter of my life so far. It seems that art, textiles, fibers and fashion are converging on many levels.
I have a fascination with the disrupted urban landscape, a heritage of textile manufacturing and the preservation of iconic mill buildings along with the random chaos of the human presence. My daily walks through this landscape inspire me to create my pieces. Right now my preferred mediums are yarn, human and synthetic hair, paint, markers, needle and thread. By combining techniques of garment construction - knitting, sewing, felting, embroidery along with drawing and painting, I create pieces that command the viewer to relate on a visual and visceral level. The silencing, warmth of felted wool draws the viewer in while the eye moves through a myriad of facets following the composition of line, form and rhythm telling my story of a journey of a single strand.
