Solo exhibit at Redux: Art Before Dishes
Redux Contemporary Art Center unveils a solo exhibit by local visual artist Daisy McClellan, Art Before Dishes, bursting with fiber art productions weaved from techniques such as punch needle, rug tufting and embroidery. The home still symbolizes the “woman’s domain” even though stay-at-home dads aren’t as obscure as they were in the 1950s. McClellan explores this social construction from the mindset of a mom who is focused on making time for her art. All the pieces are inspired by women who weren’t taken seriously as artists and employ crafting techniques traditionally attributed to women. The opening night reception is 5-8 p.m. Sept. 23. 

Sept. 23- Nov. 5. Varying hours. Free. Redux Contemporary Art Gallery. Downtown.
