Presentation by the internationally recognized NYC-based artist as part of the series. Feb. 12 at noon, at EWU, and at 6:30 pm at the MAC. Feb. 13 at 11:30 am at SFCC.
Each year for the Visiting Artist Lecture Series, Spokane Falls Community College, Eastern Washington University, and the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture bring several internationally renowned artists to share their work and artist perspectives with the Spokane community. This year’s artists are linked by the motif “Recasting Tradition.” New York-based artist Sabrina Gschwandtner is the second speaker in the lineup. Her work — quilts sewn together from strips of abandoned 16mm films — integrates the major themes of the footage and celebrates the women who starred in the films. Gschwandtner specializes in contemporary craft culture, as she uses classic patterns to compliment her unusual materials, and links both gender roles and feminism in each quilt she designs.
