ATLANTA, GA: Macey Ley’s installation Athena 2000 will be on display in the traveling exhibition Intertwined: Contemporary Southeastern Fiber Arts sponsored by the Southeastern Fiber Arts Alliance.
Athena 2000 is an interactive suspended installation for contemplation and exploration. Viewers are encouraged to enter and inhabit the phone booth-sized one-person room where they will find traces of the lives of others mended and quilted together.
The exhibition will showcase a wide range of content, material, and techniques with the common threads of craftsmanship and passion. Juror Dot Moye selected entries from a large number of regional applicants, including emerging artist Cassidy Russell, to be included in the show, along with works by invited artists curated by Ray Pierotti.
Intertwined opens January 13, 2015, at the Hudgens Center for the Arts in Atlanta, Georgia, and will travel to three other Georgia venues throughout the year, concluding September 16, 2015.
