Erica Popp Studio + Gallery presents “Threadbare,” a solo exhibition of work by St. Louis-based mixed media artist Suzy Farren on view October 5-27, 2019. Gallery hours by appointment.
The artist writes of her work: “I am drawn to old, worn and tattered pieces of cloth that easily could be thrown away – especially in a society that celebrates the new. I find beauty in ravaged pieces of fabric, so I give them new life.  I stitch them together by hand, with needle and thread, slowly and over time, in contrast to our high tech world where speed is paramount. Pieced together, they tell a new story for the viewer to discover. Threadbare will feature hand-stitched works, as well as a wall of eco-printed paper scraps and mono-prints, cardboard boxes, hand-made books, items from nature and whatever else strikes my fancy.”
Free opening reception on Saturday, October 5, 4-7 p.m.
Suzy Farren and Erica Popp Studios + Gallery will be participating in Contemporary Art Museum’s Open Studios event on Saturday, October 19, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Free & open to the public.
This exhibit is free & open to the public by appointment.
