Artist Ruth Manning will share her process of idea exploration and its transition into tapestry woven cloth. She will discuss the importance of her drawing practice and the use of tapestry language, particularly her integration of wedge weave into the traditionally horizontal approach she has used in the past. The stories behind the process of two recent series will be shared to help you gain insight into her work.
The presentation will be approximately an hour long and followed by a 30-minute Q&A. Registered individuals will receive a zoom link. Be sure your email address is entered correctly when registering. A recording of the presentation will be available to those who registered until May 13.
About the Speaker: Ruth Manning is an artist who lives in Rochester, NY. Her studio is the space that surrounds her, wherever she may be. She observes life and translates these experiences into visual art by drawing, painting, and weaving. Her ideas are inspired by people, how they alter their surroundings, spend their time, and construct their conversations. The artwork you see here is the result of this observation.
