Amze Emmons: Pattern Drift Exhibition: August 2–October 2, 2019

Author: Zachary Vickers

Amze Emmons, associate professor and program head of Printmaking at the Tyler School of Art and Architecture, recently had a mid-career, solo exhibition entitled Amze Emmons: Pattern Drift at the Academy Art Museum in Easton, Maryland from August 2 to October 2, 2019. The exhibition featured a 15-year survey of Emmons’s printed work, selected drawings and artistic exploration.  “For the past several years I have actively noticed certain kinds of visual phenomena such as portable and ephemeral building structures, improvised street furniture, and informal sites of exchange that tell a story of local agency, adaptation, and community," said Emmons. "When I travel in other cities around the US and abroad, I inevitably discover parallel phenomena.” Read More

Fibers Tech and Printmaking Alumni Amy Cousins solo show at Illinois State University

Author: Anonymous

You Will Never Have the Comfort of Our Silence Again August 18 – October 8, 2017 Amy Cousins’ large-scale sculptures and installations are based on her research into rare protest ephemera, out-of-print feminist newspapers, and first-person accounts of radical queer histories. From the Lesbian Feminist Declaration of 1976 to the Gay Liberation Dances that emerged across the U.S. in the 1970s, Cousins reimagines these remarkable yet poorly documented events and reveals captivating examples of inventiveness in queer protest. Her sculptural reinterpretations are produced with a range of processes and materials: wall hung appliqué textile figures, text made from shag fabric, a ten-foot-tall papier-mâché puppet, and an off-kilter tufted patent leather vinyl vitrine—complete with kinky lavender fur—to name a few.
