woven exploration — Columbus, OH textile artist warms the walls of Gather
October 23, 2017. Bloomington, IN: November Gallery Walk at Gather brings an amazing new artist, Sarah Harste, from Columbus, Ohio into Bloomington for the first time. Sarah is a self-taught fiber artists who weaves her pieces on frame looms of various shapes and sizes. She teaches weaving classes across the Midwest to fellow fiber Lovers, near and far.
From the artist :I use color and texture in my work to explore the tension between who we are when we’re guarded from the world and when we’re unfiltered, when we’re completely who we really are. I struggle with this tension constantly: the line between being put together, presentable, reserved and being warm, effusive, bubbling over with too much of me. I think worrying about this line often botches my ability to truly connect with others and be authentically myself. Here I’m using weaving to explore this tension and to find ways to be me, unfiltered.
You can view Sarah’s pieces online at http://www.shesgotthefever.com/.
Visit Gather at 116 N. Walnut on First Friday, November 3rd, from 5-8pm for light refreshments and the chance to see this amazing work.
