Knit and Flick with artist Sheila Pepe (Age 21+)
April 26, 6:00 – 8:00pm
$20 Members | $25 Non-Members
Share with artist Sheila Pepe her favorite production methodology: knitting with the TV on. Bring your own project or let us help you get started with an introductory skill-share session. Work while you watch one of Pepe’s favorite artist-bio movies, and then finish the night with a discussion of the film and sharing of work methods. Some materials provided, light refreshments and two complimentary drinks included. Pre-registration required.
For over twenty years, Sheila Pepe has constructed large-scale, ephemeral installations and sculpture made out of domestic and industrial fibrous materials. This exhibition, the first mid-career survey of Pepe’s work, examines how the artist often plays with feminist and craft traditions to counter patriarchal notions of recognized or accepted forms of art making. Hot Mess Formalism is organized by the Phoenix Art Museum and is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalog. Sheila Pepe: Hot Mess Formalism is made possible through a grant from The Coby Foundation, Ltd.
