Join us at the EVC Art Gallery for an artists talk and demos with Carmina Eliason, Kathleen McDonald, and Alyssa Eustaquio, artists featured in the exhibition, Author/ity: Her Story, Her Power.
Carmina Eliason and Kathleen McDonald will host an embroidery demo:
Adding embroidery to a textile work can introduce texture, colour, contrast, and create an impactful message. As artists who both work with textiles and embroidery, Carmina Eliason and Kathleen McDonald will demonstrate how to embroider different fonts and decorative details on cyanotype fabric.
Alyssa Eustaquio will host a photo transfer demo:
When fine art and DIY culture converge, you get marshmallows. Alyssa Eustaquio will demonstrate the image transfer technique used for her marshmallows and speak about the important role open source data and DIY culture has had on her making.
