About the Event
The word skein is a lovely dichotomy of definitions. It is a word that refers to a length of yarn or thread wound on a spool, or a coil, or an intertwined group of fiber. It also means a flock of geese, or birds in flight, or a succession of similar interrelated things. If one were to paint the word, one could visualize beautifully synchronized swimmers effortlessly contorting their perfect frames into a precise braid.
It would then seem appropriate to regard a group of artists as a skein of artists, not as a flock, because of their typically lone character. When artists do group occasionally, it is to draw meaning into a complex twist of context (and the need for revelry!) often emerging into a rainbow of creativity. In Skein, Artesan presents four talented artists who prove their artistry as the mighty sword, delivering a pith of thought that knocks us off our feet.
