ReNew: Louise Silk artist demonstration
January 29 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pmFree
Pittsburgh artist Louise Silk’s quilted artwork exhibiting in ReNew incorporates clothing and textiles from her parents with practices that address global warming: zero-waste and upcycling. ReNew will be on view from January 28 through May 1, 2020 at Contemporary Craft’s BNY Mellon Satellite Gallery, which is located at 500 Grant St, Pittsburgh, PA 15219 (in the Lobby of the Steel Plaza T-Station).
Silk starts to operate a zero-waste studio when she realized that she has discarded massive amounts of scrapes that are dead ended into a landfill in the past. Determined to put an end to that waste, Silk and her daughter transform recycled obsolete textiles into quality product line, SilkDenim. Coming together with the continuing exploration of stitched ordinary repurposed remnants, Silk offers Renew.
- Silk will be on-site at Contemporary Craft’s Satellite Gallery in BNY Mellon Center doing artist demonstration on sewing and quilting on Wednesday, January 29 from 10 AM to 2 PM.
