With charm and biting satire, these four artists use domestic materials to create critical and humorous work.

Charm & Vinegar features Liliana Avalos Mendoza who makes soft sculpture of household appliances and indigenous Peruvian imagery from silk-screened fabric; Edith Isaac Rose who embroiders haunting political images; Cinnamon Willis who creates “melandollis” – dolls expressing undesirable feelings; and Ruth Marshall who hand knits textiles of endangered species.

Through the exhibition and artist talk, Willis, Mendoza, Rose and Marshall will offer new perspectives on material, cultural heritage, tradition and gender politics.
