February 17th Program – Teresa Sullivan, bead weaver

Olympia bead weaver, Teresa Sullivan, is the Olympia Weavers Guild featured speaker February 17th. She will discuss the status of craft within the art world and share her artwork and it’s influences with a Trunk Show.

Teresa Sullivan creates intricate and monumental sculptural jewelry from humble materials using the ancient technique of bead weaving, revealing her love of the surreal and the irreverent.  The stories she tells in her beaded tapestries, jewelry and sculpture are about the power of people discovering their abilities; from super heroines of comics and science fiction to the real mentors of her life. The tiny beads are transformed from something delicate to bold dense, self supporting artworks. — Teresa Sullivan
