FABRICated: Works by Virginia Derryberry and Marcia Goldenstein

May 30 @ 8:00 am July 8 @ 5:00 pm

Derryberry and Goldenstein connect the ideas of women’s work and empowerment through image, concept, fabric, embroidery and other hybrid media. Their work explores the ideas of body, identity, personal stories and what is considered “craft” and “fine art.” Derryberry works on vintage handkerchiefs and painting/fabric constructions that include narrative components and symbols from alchemy. She creates non-specific story lines of a virtual, shifting world where nothing is quite what it seems. Goldenstein creates a portrait catalogue of iconic women who chose the challenge of professional careers in art and as activists while eschewing the acceptable domestic crafts considered “women’s work” with which they are portrayed. Reception – June 6, 5 – 7 pm. Sponsored by Dr. Richard and Marilyn Glass.
