Description

For Sue Weil, weaving has long provided the perfect balance of structure and freedom. The canvas starts as blank warp ends threaded on her loom, while the design builds line by line in a slow reveal until the piece is finished. It’s not until the tapestry is cut from the loom that the work can be seen in its entirety, taking on a life of its own. Of her work, she comments, “My designs are intentionally spare, often abstract, and minimalist in style and composition. Works may be simple, direct, emotional, sometimes fantastical, allowing space for each viewer to bring their own life experience to the piece.” Sue will provide background for her own practice and share some of her inspirations and influences.

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 until October 30, 2024.
