Opening reception Sunday July 9, 7-10pm

 
Varieties of Disturbance is an exhibition of sewn works on paper that hover somewhere between textile and drawing.

Completed over the past two years, the works reveal the desire to process, distort, partially erase and release text surfaces taken from stories, poems, reviews, and most recently, opinion pieces and current news into an altered state of being. Asking to be read again, the works shift back and forth between what we know and what we no longer see.

Using cotton thread and ordinary machine sewing the work is visually grounded in the basic structure of plain weaving and netting, referencing lines in nature and ancient and contemporary textiles.

Joan Weinzettle (b. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) is a Los Angeles based artist. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Textiles from California College of the Arts in 1985. She has exhibited work in the LA area most recently in WOVEN, a group show at Sturt Haaga Gallery curated by John David O’Brien and SAMPLED, a group show at Offramp Gallery curated by Anita Bunn.

On view Saturdays from 12- 4 and by appointment.
