Avenir Lecture Series: FABRICation – March 22

Hand-woven textile exhibit


The Avenir Thursday Evening Lecture Series highlights the wide-range of the Avenir’s current exhibitions, as well as guest presenters on unique subjects. Join us for this intriguing array of textile topics featured in the Spring 2018 lectures.


Join us Thursday, March 22 for a lecture on the traveling exhibition FABRICation. Susan Iverson is professor emerita in the Department of Craft/ Material Studies at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia, and Co-Director of the American Tapestry Alliance. A weaver whose artistic work is included in the exhibit FABRICation, Iverson will introduce us to this exhibition of seven artists who incorporate a textile sensibility through elements of fabric and fabrication. The artists’ “slow making” — repetitive processes that invoke introspection and reaction — leads to appreciative “slow looking” on our part. Iverson will also offer a weaving demonstration during a different part of her visit to CSU; please see the Avenir website for specific details about date, time, and location.

Lectures take place in the  Avenir Museum of Design and Merchandising, Classroom 157, 216 East Lake Street. All lectures are FREE and open to the public. The Avenir Museum galleries stay open from 5–7 p.m. on lecture evenings
