SEAD Gallery is pleased to announce their guest juror, Amie Adelman, will be facilitating an SEAD After Dark class at the SEAD Gallery and Bookshop on Oct. 17 from 7-9pm. They were honored to have Amie’s expertise when it came to jurying their very first fiber arts show, “Intersections.” Her class, “The History of Thread in Mathematics in Art,” will cover the discovery of descriptive geometry by Gaspard Monge in 1765 and will progress through mathematical models created in the 1800’s to artist work created by the artists from 1900-2017.
Amie Adelman is an associate professor and fibers coordinator at UNT. She has conducted textile research in more than 10 countries and has been exhibiting artwork nationally and internationally for 20 years. Her artwork has been published in numerous books and in a variety of journals such as the American Craft, Fiberarts, Fiber Arts Now, and Surface Design.
SEAD After Dark consists of after-hours gatherings to engage the intellect and build community. These gatherings are informal, facilitated conversations among friends led by knowledgeable members of the community. Numbers are limited to keep the conversation intimate. Advance registration is encouraged so that SEAD can provide snacks and space. Tickets cost $10, or will be $5 for students and members of the Brazos Spinners and Weavers Guild, BYOB.
SEAD Gallery is located in the Federal Building at 216 W. 26th Street in Historic Downtown Bryan. They provide a unique downtown venue for arts and cultural exchange.
