Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts is pleased to present an Artist Talk with Deidre Scherer on Saturday, October 27th at 5pm. Her current exhibit “Human Textures” will be showing at MGFA through November 18, which showcases the artist’s paper and fabric weavings, as well as collaborative vessels with artist Jackie Abrams.
Pioneering in the medium of thread-on-layered-fabric, Scherer’s collages, both in fabric and paper media, engage the viewer with the tenderness of being human. The Rhode Island School of Design honored Scherer with their 2010 Alumni Association Award for Artistic Achievement “for the innovative medium of textile art she has developed, and for her thought-provoking investigations of our society’s views of aging, reflections on life, death, family relationships and the welfare of future generations.” Scherer has exhibited in hundreds of shows since 1979, and has been featured in several galleries nationwide including the Baltimore Museum of Art and the Heller Museum in NYC.
Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts is committed to presenting innovative, contemporary works in a variety of media that stimulate both the seasoned collector and aesthetic explorer.
