There is a common thread in the work by the artists in Meyer Vogl Gallery’s upcoming group exhibition — fabric. Bold, colorful, patterned fabrics inspire the work of Carrie Beth Waghorn, Paul Ferrari, Melanie Parke, and Adrienne Stein — and the artists will come together in December for High Fiber, which runs December 6 - 27.
Waghorn was a natural fit for the exhibition as, in addition to her paintings, she works hands-on with textiles. "This collection offers purely whimsical silhouettes with fashion illustration a la mode directly inspired from my clothing line, World Ink Project,” she says. “It has been a pure dream to paint the fashion my heart yarns to create without bounds.” For the exhibition, Waghorn has designed a three-dimensional fashion installation featuring one of her original designs.
In addition to Waghorn, Ferrari’s paintings pay homage to his days as a fashion illustrator for Ralph Lauren in New York. Parkes’ interior paintings are a feast of mixed patterns and bold colors. And as a painter of female figures, Stein is constantly adorning her models in garments that become the subject of her work as much as the women themselves.
An opening reception will be held in association with the Charleston Gallery Associate Art Walk on Friday, December 6, from 5-8pm. Artists will be in attendance.
