DU Galleries feature faculty artwork
This winter, shake off the cold and step into a University of Denver gallery to enjoy creative works of our talented faculty. The second annual Fieldworks: Creative Research by DU Faculty 2019 in the Vicki Myhren Gallery on display now through February 17. Later this month, the Museum of Anthropology Gallery will host an opening reception of a quilt exhibit, Bound by Thread: Sister Fred's Quilt Art, on January 31.
The Fieldworks exhibition offers a candid view of the art-making process with a special focus on research, revision, successes, and failures. Faculty artists offer a glimpse into their unique modus operandi. Expect to see new and old works, projects in progress, an installation reflecting historical research, and a fusion of poetry with ceramic sculptures. This year's artists are Rafael Fajardo, Meg Jackson, Deborah Howard, Mia Mulvey, Bin Ramke, Chinn Wang, and Kate Casanova. The exhibition runs through February 17.
The Bound by Thread exhibit features handmade quilts created by Frédérique Chevillot, professor of French & Francophone Studies and self-taught quilt maker. Chevillot pieces together used and worn out clothing from family and friends to build, row by row, a stunning final product. Her focus is on reuse, mindful creation, and instilling new life to old fabrics. The exhibition will open with a reception and special unveiling of a DU quilt with Chancellor Chopp on January 31, 4-6 p.m. It will run through March 22.
