Products to Promote Internal Reflection: Digital Textile Designs Inspired by the Beauty of the Imperfect
Inspired by images of tarnished, rusty objects which sometimes are covered in peeling paint, graduate student, Sarah Hillman Van Patter has created a collection of art textiles for the home and for apparel. Each of the textile designs began as a photograph which was manipulated into repeat patterns, using state-of-the-art computer-aided design technology.
The exhibit opens with a catered reception from 5 to 7 p.m. on Friday, February 7, and runs until April 24. The Gustafson Gallery is located in room 318 of the Gifford Building at 502 West Lake Street. Hours are from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday-Friday. Admission is free.
The exhibition is sponsored by the Department of Design and Merchandising in the Gustafson Gallery which is under the umbrella of the Avenir Museum of Design and Merchandising, part of CSU’s College of Health and Human Sciences.
