Fold Unfold

Appearing in both the Arts Center and Ware-Lyndon House Museum, “Fold Unfold” presents over 50 contemporary coverlets woven by artists from across the country and stacked together to form sculptural pillars. Hoping to elevate the understanding of coverlets’ importance to Southern material culture, anthropologist Susan Falls and artist Jessica Smith (no relation) invited artists to create coverlets inspired by geometric patterning and using a black, white and gray color scheme to emphasize intricacy. Approaching the exhibition from historical and contemporary perspectives, “Fold Unfold” challenges notions of what separates “craft” from “art.” During the closing reception, an unfolding performance will dismantle the pillars and reveal each individual coverlet.
