West Coast Craft Artists
West Coast Craft invites a selection of artists to create site-specific works at each show. We are proud to feature the work of the following artists:
Ben Venom's quilts juxtapose traditional handmade crafts with extreme elements found on the fringes of society, e.g. vintage tattoos, the occult, and motorcycle gangs. His work has been shown both nationally and internationally at Charlotte Fogh Gallery (Denmark), Circle Culture Gallery (Germany), Wolverhampton Gallery (England), Jonathan LeVine Gallery (New York), and the National Folk Museum of Korea, among many others.
Ellen Van Dusen is an artist and designer working from Brooklyn, NY. Inspired by fine art, commercial and naive design, and the brain's reaction to movement, color and contrast, she launched Dusen Dusen, a womenswear line known for its original bold prints on versatile, wearable silhouettes in 2010. The In brand expanded in 2015 with the launch of Dusen Dusen Home, a home goods line that includes bedding, towels, pillows, and blankets.
J.S. Nero is a furniture maker, sculptor, lighting and decorative object designer from New York City. She began stone sculpting at 16 and continued to sculpt in various mediums into adulthood. Nero apprenticed under a second generation Ed Barnsley furniture maker and focused on traditional veneer work and fine woodworking. In 2012, she began designing her own pieces, diverging from her training completely and returning to a more sculptural based ethos when approaching design. She is interested in the intersection between form and function, never over designing a piece, playing with structural support and spatial dynamics, and joining disparate shapes and materials with fluidity.
WCC is excited to exhibit a selection of CCA student work at the Summer 2016 show, including large-scale textiles collages, works on paper and more by Elizabeth Russell, Hadley Radt, Mary Mocas and Paulina Berczynsk.
Meghan Shimek is a weaver, fiber artist, and tarot reader living and working in Oakland, California. Inspired by loss, movement, healing and the acknowledgment of uncomfortable feelings, Meghan integrates the natural beauty of her surroundings, the memory of quiet snowy nights, and the sound of the stream running under her home into every weaving. She uses traditional tapestry and Navajo weaving techniques along with organic movements to intertwine raw fibers and objects to create abstract and textural wall hangings.
