Materialized Magic: Mythical Creatures in a Yarn Artistry Habitat

August 8, 2016 - August 31, 2016

After months of free workshop in Target Gallery and other locations in the region, Materialized Magic will soon be on view at the Torpedo Factory in the New Project Studio.

Erika Cleveland and Stacy Cantrell launched their CRAVE-sponsored project in 2015. The duo worked together to provide free lessons in crocheting, knitting, and felting to create Materialized Magic: Mythical Creatures in a Yarn Artistry Habitat. 

The full installation was on view at the Arlington Art Center in July 2016. It featured woodland, water, and sky habitats for the large-scale mythical fiber creatures.

The public is encouraged help the installation continue to grow by participating in meet-ups in the New Project Studio.
