Features

MANDY GREER: ALTERED STATES
by Suzanne Beal
Greer embraces mythology and nature to transform familiar spaces into realms of
enchantment. Her visceral and seductive crocheted environments, sculptures, and
garments have recently come together in a collaborative film and dance project.

RESIDENCIES & RETREATS
by Spike Gillespie
A wide range of residencies and retreats offered in the United States and abroad help fiber artists— from beginners to professionals—step outside of their normal routines to make new work.

ANGELIKA WERTH’S MADELEINES
by Janet Collins
“Hit the field” becomes an elegant proposition when wearing one of Werth’s one-of-a kind
gowns inspired by sporting events and adventurous women.

PERSISTENT VISIONS: MOVING IMAGES BY ANDREA DEZSÖ
by Dr Jessica Hemmings
Dezsö’s stop-motion animation projects involve puppetry, cut paper, and traditional indigo-dye techniques she learned during an artist residency in Japan.

FILM & FIBER FAVORITES
by Sabrina Gschwandtner
A list of some moving image fiber-art works—exceptionally beautiful, funny, and important reminders of the historical and continued power of handcraft.
