Engram 1.3

I was thrilled that Engram 1 was included in Excellence in Fibers 2016, organized by Fiber Art Now magazine. In addition to a print catalog, a selection of work was shown at the New Bedford Art Museum in Massachusetts, January 29 to March 19, 2017.

This was particularly special because my mother, whose story is printed on the fabric, grew up in Boston, and had relatives in New Bedford. For this third installation, the pieces appear to float upward toward the window. I wanted to reference the increasing holes in the fabric of mom's memory.
