Community Weavings: A Family Album
For the past few years, Sue Weil has been exploring “family” through a series of 18” x 24” tapestry studies by reincarnating castoff garments and personal effects from family members into separate woven panels. A photograph of the original garment is paired with each tapestry on display.
In this exhibit, Sue further explores the concept of “family” through broadening the scope to embrace members of all dimensions of the Art Works Downtown community. The exhibit features panels created from donated clothing and personal items from AWD residential and retail tenants, studio artists, staff and board members. Through her selection of colors, textures and shredded artifacts integrated into each panel, Sue hopes to portray the spirit of each AWD family member and their contribution to the project.
Sue Weil lives and weaves in Marin County, California. To see a preview of Sue’s work, please visit her website: www.sueweil.com
