July 14 – August 11, 2019
Opening Reception & Artist Talk: Sunday, July 14, 1-4pm
Holly Wong lives and works in San Francisco, California where she received an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in New Genres. Holly creates installations integrating non-traditional approaches with traditional sewing techniques associated with the history of women. She has received grants from the Barbara Deming Memorial fund, the George Sugarman Foundation, and the Puffin Foundation. She is a Presidential Scholar in the Arts and has had over 50 group exhibitions and 10 solo exhibitions at venues such as the Berkeley Art Museum, the Carving Studio and Sculpture Center in Vermont and the Visual Art Exchange in North Carolina.
Wong creates sculptural installations and photographs that address the subtle and ephemeral nature of psychological states. Using various materials such as tulle and thread, she strives to reconnect in herself what has been fragmented. Much of Wong’s work is constructed with extremely lightweight, layered materials that are fragments that become a visual whole.
