About The Program

Rachel will be weaving live on her 12 harness floor loom. Threaded with two warps and 110 threads in each inch, Rachel will be using a combination of tapestry and double weave pickup techniques to allow a patterned and textured abstraction of the microbial to emerge.  This same loom was used to create several of the works on display in the gallery. Looms as a technology have persisted and developed alongside humans thousands of years, from stick frames to lift mechanisms to the original punch cards which inspired binary codes that allowed for the inception of computers. Live demos will be held in the Lobby at 11:30am, 2pm and 6pm on Saturday.

Rachel Hefferan

Rachel Hefferan is our 2022 kick-off Visiting Artist, featured in the gallery and corridor with her exhibition, “here, within.” A Michigan-based weaver, is a self proclaimed homesteader, fermentation nerd, and hopeful environmentalist – which is shown in her work by creating abstractions of an invisible living network that functions unseen all around us.
