wassaic project

Living here in the rural Northeast has it benefits. The gorgeous rolling Appalachian Mountains, amazing farms and food, and some freaking cool art happenings. Like the Wassaic Project, nestled in the little hamlet of Wassaic, NY, also known as the last stop on the Metro North from NYC. 

The Wassaic Project's home in an old grain mill, and is 7 stories stacked with emerging contemporary art. It is always worth the adventure to this super cool venue.

daniel's art party

We had ourselves a smashing good time at this three week long arts festival at Simon's Rock College of Bard. I was so grateful to be included in this interactive, community art celebration. The collaborators worked so intensely to pull of a really amazing extended production. Thank you so much for this summer's most colorful memories. 

Thank you  Ken Roht for creating Daniel's Art Party!

My masks were used in a surreal, campus wide scavenger hunt. Here are a few photos from our other worldy adventure.

flying cloud

This year, my work with the Flying Cloud Institute brought me to Muddy Brook Elementary School's first grade. There, we explored the principles of light. We studied the differences between transparent, translucent, and opaque. We also experimented with taking opaque objects and transforming them into translucent objects through the transfer of heat.... and then we built cool forts.

ICA teens

In addition to being a textile artist, I am also a youth worker. I have the pleasure of being an Apprenticeship Coordinator at a youth empowerment organization in Western Massachusetts. In January, I was able to bring youth from Western Massachusetts to Boston to visit the Institute of Contemporary Art and while there, I taught a workshop at their Teen Arts Council. 

 

The workshop included a short lecture on how immersive arts experiences bring people together.... and then I taught everyone how to crochet. This cross-state collaboration was really great, and I hope to have more!

vogue knitting

I was so honored to be a featured artist at Vogue Knitting Live, New York City. This event showcases the finest fibers, fashion trends and textile artists from around the world. I was so inspired by all the new hand painted fibers I came across, and the wild styles coming out of the knit world. Vogue Knitting Live was also the debut of my new Monster Habitat. Thank you to everyone brave enough to visit my furry tent.
