Duane Reed Gallery: Friday, 2 October 2015

FOUR ENTWINED: KATE ANDERSON, LINDSAY KETTERER GATES, JANE BIRDSALL-LANDER, JAN HOPKINS
September 25th − October 17th
Opening Reception Friday, October 2nd from 5-8 pm
as part of Innovations in Textiles 10

The exhibition opens Friday, September 25th. The opening reception will take place the following Friday, October 2nd, from 5 – 8pm in conjunction with the St. Louis collaborative event Innovations in Textiles 10. The work will be on view through October 17th.

KATE ANDERSON uses the repetitive knotting basketry technique to construct her sculptures. Anderson’s play on high-art/ low-art is apparent in her use of the teapot as the basic structure juxtaposed with pop art imagery.

LINDSAY KETTERER GATES's work showcases her mastery of diverse textile techniques as well as her reverence for fashion design from around the globe. Materials like pistachio shells and beads are woven along with mesh and wire, forming structures that invoke both elegance and curiosity.

JANE BIRDSALL-LANDER’s sculptures function as “three dimensional poems.” The forms are constructed from both old and new snaths (steam-bent wood body of a scythe), combined with such materials as ebony cello pegs, glass eyes, a wooden hand, and handmade ebony spikes. She designs and binds the materials with painted waxed linen using her own wrapping technique.

JAN HOPKINS creates primarily figurative female sculptures and, throughout her career, has been inspired by traditional craft and textiles. Hopkins uses traditional basket making materials alongside alternative materials such as grapefruit peel, cantaloupe peel, sturgeon skin, lotus pods, ostrich shell beads, and hydrangea petals.

Gallery hours: Tuesday through Saturday 10-5pm.
