February 25 - April 22, 2023
From Kinfolk House:
“Kinfolk House announced today the details of its spring project, Woven Together, featuring work by Kandy G. Lopez, Isabel Wilson, and Deyjah Stewart. The latest exhibition will launch with an opening reception Saturday, February 25, 2023 from 2 pm – 5 pm. Building off of the November 2022 collaborative program with United Fort Worth and ICE Out of Tarrant, which celebrated and honored the life and humanity of the local community, Kinfolk House launches into the new year exploring themes of self-care and community healing.
For the 2023 projects, Kinfolk House continues to showcase works by local, regional, and national artists. Fort Worth-based multimedia artist Deyjah Stewart was selected from a pool of applicants to be the featured local artist this spring. Her work, which uses fabric and wood furniture to create assemblage installations, guided Kinfolk’s choice of additional artists to invite to be part of this upcoming project.
Woven Together creates a dialogue between three female artists working in textiles. While Deyjah’s installations draw on representations of family and home to re-conceptualize solitude and introspective reflection, Miami-based artist Kandy Lopez looks outward as she creates hand-sewn large-scale portraits to present externalized strength, courage, and beauty. Houston-based fashion designer Isabel Wilson, who has a history of collaborating with artists to create her designs, references Deyjah’s work in newly designed garments that are part of her spring fashion line. Learn more about each of the artists via their bios provided through the link below.
This pairing of artists, who each investigate topics of individual and collective healing, ties deeply into the mission of Kinfolk House. Fabric and textile arts hold historic and cultural significance as forms of creative expression across generations.
Woven Together will run from February 25 to April 22, 2023. Alongside the show, Kinfolk House will once again open its doors to the public to host community events that connect to the project’s themes. Learn about the array of programs offered on the Kinfolk website.”
