Artist in Residence at Praxis Fiber Workshop
Each year, an artist is invited to create a body of work at Praxis Fiber Workshop and to exhibit that work in our gallery. We often invite artists whose primary focus is not textiles—to experiment, learn and engage with our community. Past artists in residence have included Royden Watson and Justin Woody. This spring, we are excited to host out-of-state artist Eleanor Anderson, to work at Praxis for the month of March and to exhibit the results of that time in April and May.
Eleanor Anderson graduated in 2012 from Colorado College, where she studied printmaking and fibers. She works across a range of media including ceramics, textiles, prints and collage. We first met Eleanor during her 2018 summer in Cleveland and residency at neighboring organization, BRICK Ceramic and Design Studio. Captivated by her dreamy mark-making and graphic color choices, we are excited to see how her time in Cleveland influences her material choices, motifs and final designs.
About her work, Anderson says, “My work in textiles and ceramics is rooted in exploring the space between drawing and sculpture by combining traditional craft technique with intuitive impulse. Play is the engine that propels my studio practice and gives me freedom and satisfaction in the process.”
Stop by Praxis during March open studios to meet Eleanor! And please join us at the opening reception of Playing Up Downstairs on April 5 from 6:00 to 9:00pm.
