December Speaker Of The Month – Ashley Leon
December 2, 2020 @ 6:45 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us on Zoom for our December 2 VAST meeting which will start at 6:45.
This month we delve into the world of fibers with Ashley Leon. Ashley is from Oklahoma but moved to Texas to attend the University of North Texas where she obtained her Bachelor’s of Art in Studio Art with a concentration in Fiber Art. She specializes in both 2D and 3D works focusing on people and their identities. She considers her works to be portraits capturing the processing of hope or trauma. They are not exclusively visually humanoid in nature but the works range from symbolic objects to sewn figures. Placing artistic function into practical objects, she highlights the structure and weathering shown in the many components and fibers. Fiber art can be identified narrowly to a regulated and confined role but she hopes to use her art to broaden this role and explore the ways people can be identified by fiber-based art.
