29th International Sculpture Conference Opening
October 12, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Featuring artwork by Krista Cibis Textile Hive Artist in Residence
PNCA is delighted to host the opening reception, Marketplace, and exhibitions for the 29th International Sculpture Conference.
The ISC will travel to Portland, OR from October 12-15, 2019 for the 29th International Sculpture Conference: The Multifaceted Maker, bringing together a diverse audience to discuss the influence and impact of contemporary sculpture, and its potential for cultural influx.
Visitors will start the conference on a high note at PNCA meeting Marketplace vendors and viewing exhibitions.
Inspired by the Andrea Aranow Collection at Textile Hive, Krista chooses to use traditionally feminine materials (such as textiles and hand sewing) in the world of contemporary art where the line between what is called craft and what is called fine art can be as thin as a needle and thread.
Her work is centered on observation of communication and culture. Materials and techniques are important aspects of the works. The materials range from textile, organic, synthetic, or found objects. The medium and technique, whether hand-sewing or documentary-style photography, reinforces the meaning in her work. She draws on her research background, extensive international travel and lived experiences. Her newer works are inquiry-led projects with exploration of materials and dimensionality. She is a PNCA graduate student pursuing a double MFA in Visual Studies and Critical Theory.
Portland Textile Month only happens one month out of the year and we have more events than we can list. So the TextileX-change has been created to serve as a year-round companion site. Both community platforms provide a space to share ideas, histories, knowledge, commerce, and practices across cultures and generations.
TextileXchange serves as a primary hub to foster this inspired exchange throughout the Portland textile community and beyond. We hope you’ll join us!

Help Fund the Next Phase of Development of Portland Textile Month
In a little over two years, PTM has turned from an ambitious idea into an engaged community movement. This transformation highlights the power of our mission to foster collaboration cross-pollination, cultural dialogue, and exchange among the Portland textile community and beyond.
We've organized 3 festivals with over 170 events representing the diversity of textile interests and practices. And we've galvanized makers, businesses, teachers, students, institutions, and organizations to gather around shared interests and knowledge-sharing.
PTM would not have been possible without the dedication of a core group of committed volunteers and the receptiveness of the textile community. We hope to continue building PTM and TextileXchange as sustainable resources that serve the textile community for years to come. And that's where you come in.
If you feel a connection to the PTM mission and what we can accomplish together, please consider directly supporting the next phase of our development. As a direct contributor, your funds will go toward directly towards operational expenses.
