New Works by Marilyn Henrion
April 3 – 28, 2012

Thursday April 5, 6-8 PM
Saturday April 14, 3-6 PM

These new mixed media works are inspired by the natural world. The works find resonance in the scientific theory of Complexity, as well as in poetry. With this 20th solo exhibition, Marilyn Henrion marks her 80th birthday. Continuing her commitment to applying contemporary aesthetic sensibilities to traditional textile techniques and combining them with modern technologies, the artist celebrates that irregular and intimate quality of things made of the human hand. In this series, she prints digitally manipulated photographs on fabric, creating three layers and adding depth and animation to the surfaces by hand quilting with silk thread. Constructed with the finest materials and museum-quality craftsmanship, the medium is transformed into a vehicle for sophisticated visual expressions with strong graphic impact.

Twelve Voices from One
Graduates of  the Art Cloth Master Program 2010 Exhibition

Students of Jane Dunnewold’s Art Cloth Mastery Program will exhibit at San Antonio’s Radius Gallery from March 29 through May 31, 2012.

The reception, will be on Thursday, March 29 from 5:30-7:30 pm. The reception will be open to the public.

Based in San Antonio, Jane Dunnewold is a world renowned, award winning mixed media artist. An author of books and DVD’s related to the subject of art cloth, Dunnewold exhibits and conducts workshops domestically and internationally.

The twelve exhibiting students from around the world studied the elements of design, dyeing textiles, surface manipulation and mixed media applications as they honed their individual styles. Five week long studio sessions are supplemented with rigorous interim assignments during the two-and-a-half-year endeavor. The exhibition is the culmination of the participants’ efforts.

Designed and implemented by instructor/artist Jane Dunnewold, the Art Cloth Mastery Program is unique in its ability to provide advanced education in contemporary surface design practices. The program is enrolled each year from a roster of applicants who must provide evidence of previous experience and serious intent, and is limited to twelve students per term.

The Radius is located at 106 Auditorium Circle in Downtown San Antonio. The gallery is open from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm Monday through Friday.
