Louise Eastman, Curator
Janis Stemmermann, Printmaker
Opening Reception, Friday October 12, 6-9pm
A field trip to the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation – seeing Anni Albers weavings and prints side by side – was the inspiration behind Print/Weave. Under Louise Eastman’s curatorial direction, Jamie Boyle, Molly Haynes, along with Louise herself, have been in residence this fall season making prints on the press at Russell Janis.
In this creative experiment, we wanted to let the sculptural act of the printmaking process embrace the materiality of weaving. Crossing over from loom to press, fabric to paper, the tactile functions of the cloth used are irrevocably changed and transformed, releasing new potential in the way a textile can be experienced.
