Bigger Than Each Other

Deidre Scherer's Series

of fabric and thread artworks focuses on the universal issues of age and mortality. By honoring the process of aging and dying, these figurative images lift the invisibility that surrounds this subject. This work starts a dialogue about death, and therefore about life, that is essential to our times.


Cathy Weber's Grief Series

combines calligraphy, gold leaf, illumination, narrative illustration, stitchery and the poetry of Gertrude Stein. Informed by personal loss, the artworks form a chronology of loss, grief and healing.
