Daniel Garver is currently one of the Artists-In-Residence at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft. He works as a weaver stating, “From fragments of drawings, weavings take shape and present new regulations and constraints, which are in turn manipulated again by the instruction of masking, resisting and dyeing. My process of making continually shifts between drawing and weaving, two dimensional and three dimensional, to mutually inform each material and new work.”
He is from Madison, Wisconsin, and holds a BFA from the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee (2011). In 2015 he was selected for a two year Fellowship at the Penland School of Crafts. During this Core Fellowship, the unrestricted exploration of craft and material studies radically shifted his practice from ceramics to focus primarily on drawing and textile.
Come, meet a new member weaver and learn how he develops and expresses his ideas through this great medium. Saturday, May 19, 10 am at the Guild House.
