Kristy Bishop and Camela Guevara will be showing their work together for the show Pinned Down. The show will be at Stems at 208 Coming St., Charleston, SC with an opening reception on August 17th. Pinned Down will be on view from August 17th - 23rd.
Kristy Bishop will be showing new work utilizing hand dyed silk. She sews equally by hand and machine to form simple shapes that comprise many different gradients of color and tonality. Each piece is driven by color and their link to emotion, whether it is that of the artist or viewer. Her pieces are meant to stir emotion through color and are left untitled so as not to influence the viewer on what they feel when seeing each piece for the first time. Her work was recently featured in Small Stories, curated by Joetta Maue at the Urban Alchemist Design Collective in Brooklyn, NY.
Camela graduated from the College of Charleston in 2010 with a B.A. in Fine Arts. Camela’s work as a seamstress informs her artwork, merging fashion and time-worn sewing techniques with fine art to create anachronistic, spare images with textiles. Her work was recently featured in a group exhibition entitled Concurrent in Charleston, SC and she is currently an artist at Redux Studios.
The opening reception will be open to the public from 6-9 pm on August 17 at Stems. Any further information about the show can be found by visitingwww.kristybishop.com or calling Stems at (843) 789-4930.
