Join the HP Library and Nasher Sculpture Center for 2 days of in-depth discussion and making focused on the artwork of Sheila Hicks.
Hicks has been working almost exclusively with textiles throughout her decades-long career. Known for pushing the material into monumental scale, Hicks’s textile sculptures and installations transform thread and fiber into entire environments and reflect her formalist training, with their emphasis on color, form, and line.
Join us Friday evening for a presentation on the life and work of world-renowned artist, Sheila Hicks, whose site-specific installation in the Nasher Garden will be on view May 11 - August 18, 2019. Then on Saturday afternoon, continue learning about this artist and her work. Together participants will learn basic weaving techniques, color theory, and material history. Everyone will leave with a beautiful weaving.
Reservations are required. To make reservations for the program and workshop, please call the HP Library, 214-599-9400.
