Made by Hand – Anita Luvera Mayer in Kansas Show

March 24, 2018

In the last few blogs I have featured some of our past Certificate and Diploma students and have shared some of their exhibits around the States and Canada.  Have a look at the photos and slides of some of Anita Luvera Mayer’s artwork below. You can see some of her work at an upcoming exhibit  at the Manhattan Kansas Arts Center in the Chapman Gallery titled Made by Hand: A Journey Expressed Through Fiber.  The show will feature  artists Anita Luvera Mayer and Jennifer Schermerhorn.

Anita Luvera Mayer has donated to Kansas State University her collection of over twenty-four garments created during the past fifteen years which will be featured in the exhibit.  She creates garments infused with personal experiences by incorporating a wide range of techniques including dyeing, weaving, beadwork, and embroidery.  Her work is sold at Classical Style in Anacortes, Washington and can be viewed at anitaluveramayer.com.   Schermerhorn creates figurative sculptures that capture the relationship of humans and nature, challenging women’s roles in society.

The exhibit opens April 7th and ends May 12 with an opening reception April 13 , 5-7 p,m.  Anita will be attending the reception and will also be presenting a trunk show of her work over a three day period.

    I took a class from Anita many moons ago and it’s how I found your center. Wonderful of Anita to donate her garments and congratulations to her on her upcoming exhibit.
