Description

Embroidery, long relegated to women's work and domestic life, is now being elevated by fine artists such as Deborah Guzmán Meyer whose work is on view in the New Directions in Fiber Art exhibition. In her New Americans series, Guzmán Meyer, transforms a passive craft into an active process by photographing biracial children and using embroidered patterns from different cultures to examine how we categorize one another. In this master artist workshop, Guzmán Meyer will engage young people in discussions about her artwork in the galleries, then teach basic embroidery stitches to make postcard art with a social conscious.
