South Two Gallery

Josephine Cachemaille's "The Travellers"


Diana Baumbach's "Pulley"
Wendy Kawabata' s "Acts V"

Working and dealing with fiber or textiles as a source, artists Margery Amdur (Philadelphia, PA), Diana Baumbach (Laramie, WY), Josephine Cachemaille (Auckland, NZ), Michelle Forsyth (Toronto, Canada), Wendy Kawabata (Honolulu, Hawaii), and Io Palmer (Pullman, WA) isolate and subvert materials to pose questions about accumulation, mass-production, and the role of materials and the handmade in the 21st century. In this six-person exhibition the artists present work that has developed out of similar methodologies, but is visually distinct.
