GREENSBORO — Visual artist Thea Clark will create new sculpture and fiber art installations as part of a GROW residency from Aug. 1-28 at the Greensboro Cultural Center.
The residency will include open hours for the public to work alongside Clark and contribute to large-scale fiber arts pieces. She also will offer cyanotype creation (sun prints) and enamel jewelry-making workshops.
The residency will examine how humans and nature interact, specifically in regard to climate change, and will focus on the creation of new sculpture and fiber art installations.
The city announced Clark’s residency on Tuesday in a news release.
Clark is a multidisciplinary artist with an extensive background in jewelry making. Her work has been exhibited internationally, published in numerous books, and was awarded a NJ State Council on the Arts Fellowship in 2012. She has shown sculptures, installations, and 2D artwork on paper in solo and group shows. To learn more about Clark’s work, visit theaclark.com.
