Artist Talk with Allie Sutterer
January 7, 2019
Join us for an artist talk with Allie Sutterer on January 7 from 6 – 8PM. Free and open to the public. Her exhibition Undoing Structure is on display at Art Gym January 3-25, 2019.
In her project proposal – Everything I Know – for the Create Award, recipient Allie Sutterer explains: “Sewing is a skill passed down to me through generations of family members. In this exhibition, I use an inherited skill to not only mark and change images of childhood, but also cherish and reflect on the ideas my family lovingly passed down to me as fact.” Her childhood photography, thread, embroidery and framing come together to assist Sutterer in her exploration of how we restructure what we were taught as children into what we have come to know as adults. By veiling portions of her original childhood photographs with carefully composed embroidery and matting, she forces the viewer reflect on how their own childhoods and the evolution of their beliefs.
Allie Sutterer received her BA in Studio Art with an emphasis in Photography from the University of Colorado, Boulder. Since graduation, her art practice has focused on the use of fibers, founder images and original photography to explore our constant need to question learned practices and belief systems.
