In Response - Weaving by Ann Roth and Vita Plūme
May 31-September 6, 2012
Closing reception: Thursday, September 6, 6-8pm

Two contemporary weavers respond to objects from the Gregg Museum's permanent collection with works of their own. Vita Plume uses portraits taken in the Appalachians in the early 1900s by photographers like Doris Ulmann, Bayard Wooten, Paul Buchanan and others as a source of inspiration for making ghostly images and patterns hand woven on a digital Jacquard loom that explore the instability of visual and cultural identity. Ann Roth finds inspiration in quilts from the Gregg collection whose rhythmic repetition of geometric shapes, juxtapositions of fabric patterns, and often quirky color combinations influence her ikat, hand woven textiles.
