Artists Looking at Art: Jane Dunnewold
Jane Dunnewold's textiles fuse fine art and traditional quilting techniques, resulting in works rich with tradition and innovation. By layering dyed patterns and using different types of cloths from around the world, Dunnewold offers a sense of exoticism that is otherwise grounded in an inherently disciplined craft. This talk was held on June 13, 2013 at the McNay Art Museum.

Though formally trained in painting, Shannon Crider uses found paper to create her intricate, figurative collages. In her newest work, "The Ballad of Polynices", Crider seeks to explore "questions of human dignity, particularly in the face of familial tragedy."
