Tamara Embrey: Catch and Release

September 24, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Tamara Embrey presents her new collection:
Catch and Release 

Please come, meet the artist, join us for refreshments and you might just catch one of these beautiful one-of-a-kind cashmere sweaters to brighten the fall season.

 “The inspiration for the show is my visit to the Andy Warhol Museum. I was thinking a lot about the idea that a flower is something beautiful, but whose beauty is ephemeral. After a summer of working on this new collection of cashmere applique sweaters, they are ready to be released back into the world (all my sweaters are catch and release).

My idea was to make only minimal changes to the structure of the sweater itself. I liked the idea that I was merely “catching” these beautiful cashmere sweaters, and then releasing them back into the world. Only now adorned with appliques.
