WEDES, opening Friday, April 14, at Darger HQ, will feature work by Sarah Rowe (Omaha, Nebraska) and Angela Simione (New York, New York) and will be on view through June 4. The opening reception will be 6:00 to 9:00 pm, with an artist talk at 6:30 pm, moderated by Alex Priest, Exhibition Manager of the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts.
Both artists are inspired by traditional crafts and the work embodies illustrations of everyday objects as metaphors of self-identity, boundaries and protection. WEDES, (pronounced weeds), is a traditional mourning garment. Simione and Rowe decided upon WEDES as the exhibition title due to the current dreary political climate and both use clothing as a means to express hidden or hard emotions, and the double entendres of the word: weeds spreading, unruliness, the infringement on an unwanted entity, etc.
