Da Vinci Art Alliance opens 2 exhibitions

The Da Vinci Art Alliance at 704 Catherine Street opened two new exhibitions.

Rebecca Conviser: Creative Expressions opened on Jan 13, and will soon also be available as a video walkthrough. 

Conviser began making needlepoint tapestries in order to process her battle with breast cancer. The stitching helped Rebecca to recover her arm and hand strength, while the infinite range of beautifully colored yarns filled her with optimism. Weaving her life experience through the yarn, each tapestry became an homage to her life and the relationships she has formed along the way. The dramatic contrast of light and dark, the bold colors, the intricate patterns, all working together to tell Rebecca’s story.

At the same time, there will be a group exhibition on display called “Concentric Craft” which is juried by Ashley York.

Distinguishing itself outside of utilitarian use, this show explores the materiality and form in the traditionally domestic media of ceramic and fiber art. This collection will balance on the contrast of the physical nature of these two mediums and the similarities in their connotations to craft. For information, visit davinciartalliance.org. Both exhibitions run through Feb. 2.
