As a knitting and textile artist, Virginia Catherall’s work has a close affinity to the land. In 2016, she was selected as Artist-in-Residence for the Great Basin National Park and spent a month living there and gathering inspiration from the diverse landscape. She subsequently created knitted pieces which are featured in the exhibition Wearable Landscapes. “My finished pieces are not only artworks but are functional as wearable art,” states Catherall. “The act of creating something so entwined with the land itself sparks a stewardship and urge to conserve the land. I hope that others will be inspired to enjoy, conserve, and steward our unique landscape.” Catherall will also lead a free knitting workshop July 10 and August 7 from 6-8 p.m. to help knitters find inspiration in nature. Knitting skills and advanced registration are required. To register, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Catherall will give a gallery talk about her work on Friday, June 15 at 5:45 p.m. in conjunction with Gallery Stroll and the exhibition opening.
