Recurring Dream, Gay Lasher

Apr. 16, 2016 - Jul. 03, 2016
These creatures come at night, at different times, in different visages visitors from the unconscious. They speak their own language which you must decipher. They will continue to come until you understand their message. Pay attention. They are your guides. Artist Gay Lasher has generated six different versions of a young man walking into a house from one color digital photograph. The images were created by digitally manipulating the photograph then printing the results on paper-backed cotton panels. Lasher painted additional elements and machine-stitched the finished quilts. Meet Colorado artist Gay Lasher at the opening reception for Recurring Dream, April 16th from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Visions Art Museum in the arts district of Liberty station. Admission is $7. Members of Visions Art Museum enjoy free admission. Wine and light refreshments will be served.

Stitch Stories, Cas Holmes

Apr. 16, 2016 - Jul. 03, 2016
Cas Holmes draws on her relationship with nature and the links with family history to tell stories with textiles. She incorporates found materials and bits of fallen flora she finds while walking through her adopted County, Kent. Meet Cas Holmes at the opening reception for Stitch Stories, April 16th from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Visions Art Museum, San Diego, California. Admission is $7. Members of Visions Art Museum enjoy free admission. Light refreshments will be served. Cas Holmes draws with needle and thread using her stitches as her drawing tool, sewing together the layers of ephemera gathered from life and nature. Her textiles reflect an environmental theme noting the changes in the landscape that occur with human's impact on the land. Pieces of worn clothing and household fabrics help tell the stories of peoples' lives, members of her family and people she has known who find their way into her work. Her delicate collages form a window into the lives of the people who wore the clothing and used the household textiles. Cas Holmes teaches workshops around the world and has authored books about her work and her techniques. "I make pieces for public and private spaces," states Holmes. "The challenge of creating works for different spaces is open to all kinds of possibilities, and I have made installations and public art pieces for hospitals, community spaces, museums and the workplace."
