Talk about Flash Back Friday, I Just happened upon a post in My Modern Met, which was also followed up by JunkCulture that features an exhibition of mine from 2012, For Your Pleasure.
The headline of the entry is "Artist Encourages Viewers to Destroy Her Delicate Sculptures."
I am pleased to announce that I will be spending the summer at Elsewhere in Greensboror, NC as a Production Team Intern.
Elsewhere is a living museum set in a three-story former thrift store. We're building new futures from old things in Greensboro and across the globe.

Redefining Ritual , Raliegh, NC
Tracy Spencer-Stonestreet & Courtney McCracken
April 4-May 31, 2014
Redefining Ritual brings together work by artists Courtney McCracken and Tracy Spencer-Stonestreet, women whose innovative voices both take on the traditions of Southern culture. They ask what it means to both inherit and make traditional expectations of home and femininity your own in the 21st century, sometimes visualizing this as a literal burden or as an entanglement.
For more information on the exhibition please visit the Artspace website.

Mending: New Uses for Old Traditions
at UNCW Art Gallery, Wilmington, NC
Febuary 24th- April 4th, 2014
Mending is a southeastern regional exhibition, which features work created with or about traditional media or representations of women. Mending is held in conjunction with the 2014 Southeastern Women's Studies Association conference hosted by UNCW's Women's Studies and Resource Center (WSRC). Their works explore the evolving representation of women through traditional women’s media including cross-stitch, quilting, embroidery, sewing, and weaving as well as cast glass, etching, photography, handmade paper, and installation. The exhibition presents a multi-faceted contemporary update on the depiction of women through an incorporation of history and tradition.
For more information on the conference, please visit the SEWSA website.
Also, an article in response to the exhibition in Encore Magazine.
