January 20 – Dressing the Loom Alex Miller and Lorraine Barger

Dressing the Loom is a large-scale installation that takes inspiration from weaving and presents it in an abstracted sculptural form. By breaking down weaving into basic concepts; line, tension, organization, building and layers, it emphasizing the beauty of the warp at the point before weaving begins.  Walking with the warp provides quiet meditation and an exploration of the state between tension and potential.
