Artist Talk with Eli West, Lilia Hernandez Galusha and Vanessa Calvert

October 20, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Join local artists Eli West, Vanessa Calvert and Lilia Hernandez Galusha as they speak about the influence and importance of fiber in their works.

Three local artists speak about the influence and importance of fiber and textiles in their work.

Eli West works across mediums, consistently utilizing fiber waste to create a raw aesthetic that playfully blends the beautiful and distrubed, primarily through felting techniques.

Lilia Hernandez Galusha approaches her work through a multimedia studio practice seeking ways to tell narratives that deliver validation, understanding, or representation to herself and others. Often her works blend fiber-related techniques with storytelling, design, and mixed media.

Vanessa Calvert is a mixed media artist often using fiber and found materials to explore the boundaries between stasis and motion, stability and fragility, holding and binding.

Join the three artists at the YOU:(Curated) showroom at the redesigned Pickle Factory for a talk about their process, upcoming projects and collaborations, and the importance of fiber in their work.

To navigate to the Pickle Factory, use the following address: 8250 N Albina. This will place you directly across from the entrance gates of The Pickle Factory. Enter through both gates, head toward the largest building, (building B) and Suite B100 is at the far north end along Columbia. Look for the yellow door! Questions? Call Jamie: 503-347-5318
