FRI 3-6pm. SAT 10am-7pm (meet the artists 5pm – 7pm). SUN 11am to 5pm.
Drop Forge & Tool resident artists Jen Hewett and Caitlin Parker will show and sell works at a very special Hudson River Exchange pop-up.
Jen Hewett is a printmaker, surface designer, textile artist and teacher. A lifelong Californian, Jen combines her love of loud prints and saturated colors with the textures and light of the landscapes she grew up with to create printed textiles that are both highly tactile and visually layered. Jen will be showing works from her project entitled Print, Pattern, Sew: A Year of Hand Printed Fashion. An assortment of Jen’s hand printed items will be for sale. Jen is in residency at Drop Forge & Tool in May. She lives in San Francisco, CA.
Caitlin Parker is a painter, sculptor and textile artist whose work evokes the spiritual connection between animal, plant & human. Much of her current work includes printing on paper and fabric with pressed plants and flowers, and experimentation with sun printing, dyeing and resist methods. Caitlin will be showing her new works on fabric, including large framed artwork and clothing made in collaboration with Tilden of Oakland CA. Also available for purchase will be prints from Caitlin’s Flower Wolves series and a selection of her fabrics. Caitlin was in residency at Drop Forge & Tool in January of 2016. She lives in Saugerties, NY.
