Metamorphosis Opening Reception + Weaving Demonstration
October 22, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
CRS (Center for Remembering & Sharing) announces an Opening Reception with the artist, Nobu, for the exhibition Metamorphosis on October 22, 2016 from 5 – 7 pm. During the reception, attendees will have an opportunity to learn about and try weaving on a SAORI loom like the one used by Nobu to create the works on view.
“Saori, the Zen Art of Weaving,” a 20′ documentary about the SAORI hand-weaving method and its creator, Misao Jo, will be shown at 5:30 pm, followed by a brief talk by Loop of the Loom Founder Yukako Satone introducing the SAORI ARTS NYC non-profit organization (saoriartsnyc.org).
The exhibition opens on October 6 and will remain on view through November 30, 2016. This, the second exhibition of SAORI fiber art at CRS, aims to demonstrate the potential for using the SAORI therapeutic approach to weaving to explore one’s emotional and creative impulses deeply enough to create works of striking imagination, originality and visceral impact that can be appreciated as art and serve as a vehicle for liberation for both creator and viewer.
