Artists Weave Fabric Tale of Womanhood at Perkins

Four artists' work at Collingswood's Perkins Center for the Arts is part of the larger FiberPhiladelphia2012.

' Collingswood gallery will feature Consuming Boundaries through May 12. 

Consuming Boundaries navigates the fabricated spaces created by four artists as they push and pull the boundaries that intermittently define their own emotional and physical states. It questions the role of the female artist and favors the internal logic and fiction of each artist’s practice and the issues that fuel their investigation of self—as woman and artist.

This exhibition features the work of four fiber-based sculptors: Maria Anasazi, Susan Benarcik, Ana B. Hernandez and Diane Savona. Their project bear few similarities, yet they share an active process where there is direct involvement in, attention to and engagement with the materials throughout the execution of the piece.

The gallery hours are Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, 10 a.m.-2 p.m., at 30 Irvin Ave. A meet the artists reception is free and open to the public on April 12, 6-9 p.m. On April 14, 9:30 a.m.-1p.m., Perkins will host a free family activity that allows the community to work with the artists to create "memory" fiber artwork.
