Arts Commons Presents
Ledge Gallery

Caitlin Thompson

Location: The Ledge Gallery (+15 level of Centre Court)
Dates: March 5 - June 1, 2019
Artist Reception: Friday May 31st 7:00pm-10:00pm 2019

PANORAMADA fills The Ledge Gallery with colorful needleworks incorporating embroidery, appliqué, and repeating patterns. The natural and the digital collide in imagery of landscapes – made both by hand and with machine. PANORAMADA is an exhibition of embroidermation - combining both embroidery and animation in a dynamic arrangement of textiles. Embroidermation creates looping, revolving scenes of landscapes nodding towards the history of the panoramic vista.
