Weaver to create environmental textiles

By
November 28, 2012 |

Fourth generation Navajo weaver, Melissa Cody, will occupy the Kimball Education Gallery from Dec. 5 to 27, as part of the de Young’s Artist-in-Residence Program.

Cody works in the Germantown Revival style, while simultaneously venturing beyond rules of traditional design to draw inspiration from contemporary multi-media artists.

“By incorporating eclectic color schemes and bold, sharp lines, my work stands apart as a signifier of the new wave weaver. I find this to be vital in the continuation of creativity,” said Cody.

During her residency at the de Young, Cody intends to create woven textiles that address environmental issues that affect “The Forgotten People,” tribal members of her home region of the Navajo Reservation in rural Arizona.

Cody’s artistic endeavors have taken her from Arizona, to Washington, D.C., Southern Africa, and San Francisco.

As an Artist-in-Residence at the de Young, Cody invites visitors to learn about the historical relevance and the creative and technical processes of the time-honored medium of weaving.

Visitors can interact with Melissa Cody Wednesday through Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m.

The opening reception for Cody’s exhibition will be Saturday, Dec. 15 from 3 to 5 p.m. in the de Young, Kimball Education Gallery. Also on Dec. 15, at 1 p.m., there will  be a Native American Poetry Series, organized by Kim Shuck, featuring readings by L. Frank, Indira Allegra, Sherry Wilson and Nazbah Tom. Admission is free, doors open at 12:30 p.m.

The Kimball Education Gallery is free and open to the public during museum hours. The de Young Museum is located in Golden Gate Park at 50 Hagiwara Tea Garden Drive in San Francisco. Museum hours are Tuesday to Sunday from 9:30 a.m. to 5:15 p.m., closed on Mondays.

General museum admission is $10 for adults, $7 Seniors (age 65 and over), $6 Youths (age 13–17) and college students with ID. Members and children 12 and under are free. The first Tuesday of each month is free general admission.

For more information call 415 750-3600 or visit the Website at deyoungmuseum.org.
