Debra Smith’s new works contained in the exhibition Seeking Balance are the result of both an intuitive process, formed from years of working with historic textiles, and a mindful practice. Each work is an open expression, constructed in an extraordinary way - with hours of stitching, embedding layer upon layer of material. For Smith, her art is an articulation of her life. It is this dance to distract and effort to breathe where eventually everything connects and the destination is a place of beauty and clarification.

Memory Trace is an exhibition of pieced vintage textiles.
In an effort to expand community outreach, Debra Smith will be creating a temporary studio within the walls of the exhibition space. She invites the community to get a peek into the creative eye and the evolution of her pieced silk textiles. After a recent surgery, Smith felt her brain cells diminished and she began to revisit the lost bits of pieced vintage silk that had been created over the last 20 years but had not yet made it into a finished work. During her recovery and in an effort to maintain a studio practice Smith created 100 7 x 7 inch pieces reflecting on these Memory Traces that have occurred over the years.
Along with the installation of these 100 works, Smith will also be creating a living wall of silk that will be sewn over the length of the show in a temporary studio set up within the exhibition space. Guests are invited to sit, chat, or bring a lunch while the artist sews. Several student visits, private lunches and pop-up events will be scheduled during the month. Please contact the artist to schedule a visit or follow along on social media for events.
The 2017 Exhibition Series has been made possible through the generous financial support of Jane Hunt Meade and Dr. Benjamin Meade.
