Event Details:

Pieced is a collaborative exhibition of work by Melissa Everett Textiles and Nick DeFord and will be on display October 4-30th in the Dogwood Arts Gallery at 123 W Jackson Ave. An opening reception will be held on Friday, October 4th from 5:30-8PM. Melissa Everett: Each dyed, painted or printed textile, a unique work of art in itself, is cut and deconstructed to then be reconciled into a larger quilted piece. The steps taken resonate and reveal how hope and beauty can emerge from brokenness. Nick DeFord: The work in Pieced represents both an exploration of mapping, but also the metaphoric properties of gaming and escapism. By embellishing the already decorative surfaces of game boards, it both accentuates their paths and trails, but also destroys their utilitarianism. Additionally, by starting to use alchemical signs, symbols, images and monsters, the work alludes to the transformation from low art to high art, from ephemera to gold, and from the starting square to finished line.
