Textiles Curated by Janice Lessman-Moss On View at Heights Arts

Heights Arts in Cleveland Heights, Ohio is currently showcasing Point - Line - Pattern - Plane, a selection of textiles curated by Kent State University professor of textiles, Janice Lessman-Moss. This exhibition highlights the work of fiber artists working in Northeast Ohio who utilize a foundation of traditional fiber arts techniques and processes such as weaving, dyeing and stitching. Lessman-Moss curated the exhibition based on pattern, color, repetition and accumulation, which add layers of meaning to objects whose beauty and unique materiality reflects our current moment in time. The works of eight local textile artists are featured as part of this exhibition.

Lessman-Moss said, “I was pleased to be invited by Heights Arts to curate an exhibition of work in textile media, to present work by renowned artist Hildur Jonsson, while reacquainting Northeast Ohio audiences [with] the weavings of Laurie Addis. Emerging textile artist Katlin Rothacher, and Elena Brebenel, a new colleague in interdisciplinary textiles at Kent State University, will provide additional perspectives that build on the legacy of the processes and histories of textiles.” Other artists in the show are Si-Yun Chang, Rebecca Cross, Andrea Myers, and Jessica Pinsky. Point-Line-Pattern-Plane will be on view through Sunday, March 1.

Kent State alumnae included in the exhibition are Laurie Addis, Hildur Asgeirsdottir Jonsson as well as part-time Kent State instructors and alumnae Rebecca Cross and Katlin Rothacher. Additionally, Assistant Professor of Sculpture and Expanded Media at Kent State Stark, Andrea Myers, is included in the exhibition.
