The works presented in this exhibition are tactile constructions that reveal a range of images and abstractions built on a foundation of method and order.  In practice, the compositions unfold line by line revealing cells of color and texture that establish a field of shapes and patterns orchestrated through the unique sensibility and skillful touch of each artist.  Although varied in form and content this group of works reflects an exciting range of perspectives manifested through the process of weaving.

Film Stills from the films of Richard Myers 

Ongoing through 2022

Richard Myers is an American filmmaker based in northeast Ohio. Myers makes highly personal, experimental, low-budget films. He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree (1959) and a Master of Arts degree (1961), both from Kent State University in Kent, Ohio. Myers also taught at Kent State University in the art department beginning in 1964 and is particularly known for his 1970 film Confrontation at Kent State, which he filmed in Kent during the week following the Kent State shootings of May 4, 1970; it is an important document of the period.

Myers began to produce independent films in the early 1960s. Many of his films are highly personal, with non-narrative or loose narrative structures derived from his dreams. Myers is the recipient of two (due to a name spelling error) Guggenheim Fellowships as well as grants from the American Film Institute and the National Endowment for the Arts. The Academy Film Archive preserved several of Richard Myers' films, including AkranThe Path, and Allison Beth Krause. These Film Photo Stills were taken and gifted by Myers to the School of Art Collection at Kent State University.
