Dark Matter: Terry M. Boyd + Amanda McCavour

When: Fri., April 1, 6-8 p.m., Fridays, Saturdays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Sundays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. and Tuesdays-Thursdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through May 8 2016

Boyd and McCavour are both fiber artists who seek to express emotion through their work. For this show at the Craft Alliance, both artists delve deeply into more solemn feelings. Boyd creates menacing two-dimensional portraits of bleakness and despair through thickets of embroidery. All I Know, Is That I Know Nothing As to Why the Universe Exists features clusters of black floss running at crazy angles across a white background, studded by thick dark nodes where his needle has returned again and again. McCavour is represented by Black Cloud, a massive installation of feathery dark paper and loops of yarn that bell out from the ceiling to pool in strands and puddles of inky darkness.
