You Are…

Feminine Strength: A Trilogy of Empowered Expressions

 

This exhibition of fiber-based works seamlessly weaves together three distinct bodies of work: Bras of Beauty, Identity and Me, and Flower Power. In this amalgamation, the artist acknowledges the realms of self-discovery, identity formation, and the unabashed expression of femininity and strength. Each piece within this collection explores and contributes to a powerful narrative that explores the multifaceted dimensions of women throughout the world.

You Are....
Dr. York will be the featured artist for the duration of the exhibit. Dr. Portia York is a crochet artist, professor, and motivational speaker. Her work ties directly to our themes throughout and pushes the artistry and textiles to a whole new level! “Her work inspired me when I first saw it,” Wiedrich explained. “It’s innovative, different, and expressive.” Niche Knits opens to the public on Saturday, September 9, 2023. A public opening will be held on Saturday, September 9 from from 1pm-3pm.
