Relevant Scraps - Ani Hoover (Opening Reception)

When: Thursday, September 19, 2019 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Where: Bromeley Family Theater, Blaisdell hall

Description:

On display from September 19 to October 17, Ani Hoover creates heirloom-like fiber pieces and sculpture from discarded and readily available materials. Taking inspiration from her own childhood experiences of learning to sew and crochet with her grandmother and from spending many hours looking at DIY magazines, Hoover puts her spin on textile and craft techniques. She switches the scale for her projects using unconventional materials and repetition to transform her childhood art-making experiences into contemporary “scrap heirlooms.”
