Lost and Found: Messengers from The Edge Symposium Combines Plants, Animals, Art, Writing, and Reverence
May 17 - May 18
Paula Estey Gallery (PEG), A Center for Art and Activism, is hosting its first major symposium from May 17 – 18th with two artists who use natural materials to make beautiful handmade crafts while supporting their passion and environmental beliefs. The artists are Margaret B. Russell, a handweaver from Newbury, MA with more than 38 years of experience whose family lineage in textiles, weaving and wool workers goes back to the founding of our nation, and Melissa Hankens, a Hemp Evangelist from Salem, MA, who makes extensive use of natural fibers, primarily hemp, to make one-of-a-kind creations. More than just a weaving workshop, the program will include discussion of artists using their activism to bring about change.
