Fiber Artist Anne Wilson Collaborates at KMA

This week, Knoxville Museum of Art is hosting Chicago-based fiber artist of international note, Anne Wilson. Wilson will be collaborating with local weavers, educators, and groups of all sorts over the next few months on a site-specific installation scheduled to open in multiple galleries at KMA in January. In that fertile, mystical hinterland between Dickensian child labor and the improvised happenings of Black Mountain College-era genius, the idea is to set up a microscopic art-textiles industry. Visitors will become artists as they wind bobbins, watch weavers at work, wonder over warp versus weft, and contemplate the recent economic shifts that have taken place in the industrial Southeast. Educators interested in making their coursework part of the presentation should contact Chris Molinski at KMA.
