Show ran from 8/1/2008 to 8/23/2008

“Between the Lines,” woven notes and memorabilia

Using old handwritten documents which include diaries, letters, personal address books and business ledgers, textile artist Puryear creates narrative wall works by employing digital design and electronic jacquard weaving techniques. The artist describes her work, “I am inspired by cast-offs of ordinary importance. My intention is to honor the simplicity of these written records, their meaning blurred by time, and find beauty in ordinary parts of everyday life.”


…CAN TV interviewed the artists in the August Exhibition at ARC. See the video entitled ARC Gallery Exhibition: Mondro, Naselli, and Puryear.
