Animal, Vegetable, Mineral: artist Carolyn Sweeney at In Other Words!

December 5, 2014
Did you know, In Other Words Feminist Community Center has rotating art, featuring different local artists, on our gallery wall? It’s true! We have a new art show up right now, so come on by and check it out! 

Carolyn Sweeney’s most recent artistic work will be on display at In Other Words during December and January.  Animal, Vegetable, Mineral consists of wool blankets that Carolyn scavenged and heavily embroidered.  Carolyn uses these blankets to re-imagine classic symbols of the American west, reflecting on ideological conflicts with modern frontier life.


“Safety, warmth and shelter necessarily exist on a scale weighed against their converse partners: peril, cold, exposure. To wrap oneself in a wool blanket is to create a barrier between what is within an what is without.” –Carolyn Sweeney
Carolyn is hosting an art opening reception this Saturday December 6th from 7 to 10pm right here at In Other Words Feminist Community Center. Come on by to check out the art and to meet the artist in person! Meeting the artist is a wonderful way to learn more about Carolyn’s work. Can’t make it to the art opening reception? Please stop by anytime during store hours to enjoy this art show.
