The New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art presents “Threaded Interface,” an installation by Detroit artist Annica Cuppetelli. An opening reception for the exhibit will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday, November 17, and the exhibit runs through December 23. During the reception, which is free and open to the public, the artist will discuss her work and answer questions.
Cuppetelli’s work focuses on the overlapping boundaries that exist in the worlds of art, fashion, architecture, and fabric and the bonding dialogue between these disciplines. Using fabric to create large sculptural installations, the artist creates an illusion of presence or absence of a body. The use of a minimalist style and color palette helps to create the illusion of a silhouette in fabric and shadow.
More information about her work can be found on her website www.annicacuppetelli.com.
Cuppetelli holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in fiber and ceramic arts from the College of Creative Study in Detroit and a Master of Fine Arts degree in fiber from the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.
