A Butterfly’s Journey

A butterfly's journey.jpg

The butterfly is a rich symbol for change, diversity, and interdependence. Explore this walking meditation as part of your journey with nature in the wattle-woven copper and sapling walls of the Butterfly’s Journey. Declare (and write) an intention and weave it into the walls as you open to this new experience. 

Arbor Quilt

Arbor Quilt

Like quilting, gardening is often a piece by piece endeavor. We stitch together plants that have meaning for us, shared from a friend’s garden or collected from a plant sale, to wrap our homes in the beauty of nature. 

Arbor Quilt is an example of piecework in a garden setting. Using the Log Cabin quilt pattern, we will stitch together a vertical tapestry of plants and mosses in the main arbor walkway. 

About the Artist

These two installations are created by Richmond copper artisan Cathy G. Vaughn. Vaughn is a full-time artist and copper wrangler at her studio, Tracery 157, in Richmond, VA. An avid tinkerer, Vaughn taught herself the basics of working copper over two decades ago, and has been pushing the boundaries to reimagine and repurpose industrial-grade copper ever since.
A native of rural South Carolina, she learned the makers' ethic in her fathers’ workshop. Vaughn has a BFA in graphic design from the University of South Carolina, is active in craft guilds from North Carolina to Pennsylvania, and is passionate about the intersection of science, art, and design.

Virginia Made: An Exhibition of Craft, Art & Design

  • Peninsula Fine Arts Center

 

(Pictured: Riana Bovill, “Dreaded Self-Portrait #2” (2015), fabric and embroidery thread, 10.25 x 26.5 inches.)

Peninsula Fine Arts Center, Newport News

What is contemporary craft? Craft theory from the late nineteenth century and throughout the twentieth century valued the artisan’s hand over the work of the machine. Thus, historically, the artisan has represented an important social virtue. This exhibition will explore traditional Virginia craft artists, as well as contemporary craft artists that are blending traditional craft materials such as fabric, glass, wood, metal, and clay with contemporary technologies and, in turn, are blurring the boundaries between the traditionally established categories of craft, art, and design.

Dates: October 31, 2015 – January 17, 2016

The Peninsula Fine Arts Center is open 10-5pm Tuesday-Saturday and 1-5pm on Sundays. Admission for adults is $7.50 (discounts are available for students and seniors), children 6-12 are $4 (anyone younger is free).
