Following the Thread: Inspiration from the 52 Box Project

February 20 – April 15, 2018

Following The Thread features work by fiber artist Ellen Schiffman. Included in the show is a composition that Ms. Schiffman created a number of years ago by filling a 9" x 9" x 3" shadow box every week for 52 weeks. She used the year-long project as an opportunity to explore techniques and materials in ways that stretched and re-defined not only herself as an artist, but also the fiber art medium, and many of the individual boxes were inspiration for further experimentation and new bodies of work. In Following The Thread, Ms. Schiffman presents the original 52 shadow boxes, along with examples from the collection of work inspired by her year of exploration.
