VAE is a hub for a diverse network of artists, a venue for artists to advance their careers, and a voice to influence positive change for the creative community. As a part of our hub, VAE hosts a number of artist groups with varying disciplines for artists to meet, discuss, and create art. VAE wants to showcase the diversity and multitude of works and creativity that our artist groups help to produce.
VAE wants to showcase a range of textile works highlighting the diversity of process, materials, and presentation within this wide medium and industry. Honoring North Carolina’s rich history with textiles an focusing on works build on and expand its foundation. The intended impact of the exhibition is to expand our audience’s idea of what textiles can be.
