    Name: AN EXTENDED OUTLOOK: Bettina Matzkuhn
    Date: March 10, 2018 - April 21, 2018
    Event Description:
    Contemporary and Machine Embroidery (March 10, 2018-April 21, 2018) Bettina Matzkuhn’s textile works resonate with her intense interest in geography and mapping. Tall sculptural sets of sails, embroidered with tide runs, pilot charts, and cloud species, acknowledge the importance of observation and shared knowledge in the maritime community. Venturing farther into the elements, she stitches meteorological symbols, analysis charts, and projections of the globe onto two and three-dimensional textiles pieces. Her work uses the ancient and intriguing craft language of handwork to make compelling statements about the state of our environment.
