“Interwoven Stories International” at ACP
“BARBARA SIGMUND”: This stitched fabric page by Princeton Mayor Liz Lempert is part of the “Interwoven Stories International” exhibit, on view in the Arts Council of Princeton’s Taplin Gallery at 102 Witherspoon Street through June 23.
The Arts Council of Princeton presents “Interwoven Stories International,” three-hole fabric pages, stitched with memories, places, and people, speaking to the generosity, diversity, spirit, commitment and creativity of an international stitching community.
Curator Diana Weymar developed “Interwoven Stories” as the 2016 Anne Reeves Artist-in-Residence at the Arts Council of Princeton. She returned to curate an exhibition with over 300 pages from the Princeton community, Peddie School, Nantucket Stitching Gam, Zen Hospice Project (San Francisco), Open Space Art (Damascus, Syria), Build Peace (Columbia), University of Puget Sound (Tacoma), Yarns/NoDominion Theatre (Jersey City), and Trans Tipping Point Project (Victoria, BC).
“This show will be a homecoming for the pages that were created in Princeton and a welcoming for pages from other places,” says Weymar. “As an international project that originated in Princeton, it’s extremely exciting to see how the pages first created in this community have inspired people around the world to create to join the collective narrative.”
The exhibit is on view in the Arts Council’s Taplin Gallery through June 23, with an Artist Talk and Closing Reception scheduled for June 23 at 1 p.m. Paul Robeson Center for the Arts, 102 Witherspoon Street, Princeton. The gallery is open Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
