Talk by Shelley Socolofsky: Artist Reproductions: Textiles and the Analogue to Digital
Thursday, October 24, 2013 at 6:00 pm
Free and open to the public.

“In this lecture, Shelley Socolofsky will talk about the long history of translating artist’s work into textiles, including the origin of the innovative Jacquard loom used to create Chuck Close’s remarkable Tapestries on display at Blue Sky this month.

Shelley Socolofsky is an artist and educator living and working in Portland. Informed by long histories of textile production with its orientations to pattern, decoration, and association with ‘low arts,’ her work explores the material, conceptual, and poetic nuances of craft through a hybrid practice incorporating both digital technology and analogue hand processes.”
