Event description

Description

Join us for a healing session of radical embroidery inspired by Yelena Yemchuk’s exhibition Mabel, Betty & Bette. More and more, embroidery is being used as a medium for resistance and social expression. Let’s all stitch it out. Led by artist Erin Frisch.

Exhibition information:
For the last twenty-five years, Yelena Yemchuk has been pushing the boundaries of contemporary photography and film. What first appears to be a simple image reveals, upon closer examination, great complexity of narritive and production. Yemchuk carries out her artistic vision by working in series, questioning the validity of a single perceptual possibility. Taking its title from Yemchuck's ongoing photo series of the same name, Mabel, Betty & Bette is an exhibition exploring the often-elusive nature of identity.

Artist Bio:

Erin works in embroidery to capture specific moments of everyday life. She is often inspired by her own photography or household objects. She enjoys documenting passing moments using the slow process of embroidery. She also finds inspiration in the landscape and layered history of her home state of Texas.

Erin was born in Waco, Texas. She earned a Bachelor or Arts from Trinity University in San Antonio. She has served as the Operations Director of the nationally recognized creative youth development organization SAY Sí, increasing opportunities for youth to create art. She currently works as the Program Manager at Community Partners of Dallas, providing resources to abused and neglected children.

Erin seeks to create meaningful experiences for others to interact with art. She has reviewed arts funding applications for the City of San Antonio and mentored artists in personal finance and budgeting. She teaches artistic workshops in the community and at Oil and Cotton. She is a writer with an arts blog, Certain Slant of Light. Her experiences creating and writing about art define her as an advocate for art in all lives.
