Textile Artist Carole Harris
Carole Harris, a Detroit-based artist, draws inspiration for her work from walls and aging structures that remind us of the impermanence and the beauty of that which has lived for a long time. She celebrates beauty in the frayed, the decaying, the repaired, and that which is softened by time. Found objects, paper, rust dyeing, collage, and even burning techniques are used in her work as she relies on improvisation, rhythms, and energies of texture and pattern.

Unraveling Racism: Seeing White
A group of Michigan artists tug at the hidden strands of systemic racism woven into the fabric of American society – focusing on whiteness.
Cultivating thoughtful and informed perspectives, small groups gathered regularly across urban, rural and suburban settings to respond to John Biewen’s podcast, Seeing White, share personal experiences and create an artistic dialog around this vital issue. Inclusive, inter-disciplinary and collaborative, this lively body of work is the result. (John Biewen’s TED Talk Seeing White is at ted.com.)
September 2, 2022 – January 28, 2023
Part of the exhibit is showing at Klemm Gallery, Siena Heights University, October 10 – Mid-December, 2022.

Art in the Time of COVID
During the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic Barbara Cervenka, OP, called together a group of artist friends to respond to this time-out-of-time by making art. Eight women gathered monthly on Zoom to share their creative work; they found ways to find meaning in what was going on and to give expression to those thoughts, feelings, and observations. Artworks included drawing, painting, writing, journaling, graphic arts, collage, photography, and video production. The process of sharing has led them to show their work in this unique INAI exhibit.

Cuadros of Pamplona Alta, Peru

Embroidered and appliqueéd entirely by hand, these colorful cuadros show harvests, gardens, and scenes of everyday life. Today, women still work to make the beautiful tapestries and sell them to support themselves and their families. Cuadros are available for purchase at the Weber Center Shop.
