St. Louis Artists’ Guild hosts Surface Design Association’s “Connection: To and From” exhibition on view at the Artists’ Guild September 20-October 23, 2019.
The exhibition is a Midwestern Fiber exchange and dialogue between Kansas City Art Institute (KCAI) and Indiana University (IU) MFA and BFA students. Located in the outside display windows of the St Louis Artists' Guild, each of the three windows occupies a space that builds connections to emerging professionals in the field of textiles: one KCAI installation, one IU installation and one Mail Art group show. The mail art exchanges are improvisations and samples for building community and prompting material innovations in which over a period of three weeks, students will each make and exchange multiple small pieces.
Student participants include (listing is IU student + KCAI student): Angela Frezza + Amelia Greteman; Caroline Gerberick + Harper Newell; Fafnir Adamites + Skye Gillies; Molly Evans + Pauline Otero; Emily Zarse + Vanessa Argueta; Emily Yurkevicz +Natalie Stein; Morgan Stephenson +Lily Mueller; Liliana Rocha + Jonah Rose; Linda Tien+Penelope Stopper; Rebecca Stinger+Hannah Lee Sun; Lucy Burton+Morgan Elliot; Bethany Rahn+ Lueking Knabe; Kayla Barta + Erin Barchet; and Nora McGinnis + Carissa Carman (IU).
