The Closest Thing to Skin

Cate McQuaid of the Boston Globe reviews the work of recent fibers graduates, no on view in "Tense" at the Fort Point Arts Community Gallery.

McQuaid writes, "'Tense,' while intentionally discomforting, also feels bright, earnest, and a little raw, like the work of newly minted artists. That’s tense, too, of course — rough edges that in time will be sanded down." 

Artwork by Theresa-India Young

Theresa-India Young Scholarship Exhibition

September 4 to November 27

For the inaugural exhibition in the Frances Euphemia Thompson Gallery, the College is proud to display the work of another artist with strong ties to MassArt, Theresa-India Young (1950-2008), as well as work by current students and alumni who have received the memorial scholarship that honors her. A talented weaver with an encyclopedic knowledge of techniques, materials, and methods from numerous cultures throughout the world, her areas of expertise included Backstrap, Ikat, Kente, European tapestry, and Navajo weaving.
