Late winter work table arrangement (2015) | Abigail Doan
This winter has been a long one in NYC, but the upside to my hibernating and nesting has been the time to focus on a variety of studio projects that will come to fruition this spring.
I am currently organizing and uploading the Lost in Fiber (2014 – 2015) artifacts library and will soon share a link to a designated .com site featuring a new 'agency' for material collaborations, imagery research, and design outreach initiatives.
Coupled with this will be a series of print leaflets or mini-journals where the Lost in Fiber tactile experience can be held in one's hands and introduced into one's studio practice.
I am also working on a very exciting project with the Textile Art Center's Sewing Seeds initiative and the date + locale for this project will be announced very soon.
Also, early summer will include a solo installation project and community event with Brooklyn's Weaving Hand gallery + studio. By late June, I expect to be back in Europe.
In the midst of all of this activity, there will be continued travels to select rural and urban locales to document Lost in Fiber artifacts installed temporarily in unique environs.
Until the above is officially online or shared, please feel free to follow along on Instagram for daily imagery or via Facebook for news announcements. I occasionally Tumblr, too, and then some.
Thank you everyone for your support throughout the winter months. It will feel so good to emerge into the spring light and fresh rains soon. Fingers crossed.
