Exquisite Gorge Project II: Fiber Arts with Carolyn Hazel Drake
As an introduction to the Exquisite Gorge Project II: Fiber Arts, Carolyn Hazel Drake, one of the 13 participating artists, will give us a live peek into her workshop and creative process. After the tour, there will be time for questions.
Carolyn is partnered with the Goldendale Library, who is hosting this program. She will also present two more programs with the library as her art piece is progressing.
Carolyn’s final artwork will be displayed in front of the Goldendale Library for the month of July, 2022. The piece will then be moved to the Maryhill Museum of Art, where it will be installed with the remaining art pieces to form the complete EGPII work.

ABOUT CAROLYN HAZEL DRAKE:
Carolyn Hazel Drake is a Portland-based sculptor and third-generation Oregonian. Her work integrates textiles, ceramics, and domestic objects assembled and layered through traditional craft techniques and collage. Her meticulous handwork, made of tiny, repetitive marks or stitches, creates a visual effect of intricacy and obsessiveness that is intended to elicit a flow or out-of-body meditative state. Drake references devotional objects, archetypal imagery, and folktales to create work that feels familiar yet cryptic.
ABOUT THE EXQUISITE GORGE PROJECT II: FIBER ARTS:
