Morgan Clifford at SDA

Morgan Clifford's Checks, Nets and Woven Grids exhibition was at the Traffic Zone Center for Visual Arts, an artist cooperative located in the historic Warehouse District of downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota as part of the Surface Design Association's sponsored exhibitions at its Confluence conference 2011.

Morgan is a weaver who uses gauze-weave structures as the nets in which small, colourful, geometric shapes and pattern float across the surface. She uses unusual fibres in her weavings such as those from the Japanese store Habu in New York City.

A week later I got to attend a lecture by her discussing her career as a weaver and as head of the Fibers Program in the Art Department at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls.

As she says, "what do you do with leftover headshots from publications?" Put them together as a starter slide in presentations!
