Jonathan Hopson will present Erin M. Riley: "A Reminder of Being There," her first solo exhibition of new works with the gallery.

Riley is a fiber artist who makes large-scale tapestries using a centuries-old hand-weaving process. For her work, Riley sources yarn from shuttered textile mills around the United States; she then washes, strips and hand-dyes the wool before weaving on a Macomber loom. Her finely wrought wool and cotton weavings rely on implied narrative and personal history, ingeniously toggling between access and obscurity. This exhibition will feature her meticulously crafted, tapestries depicting intimate scenes that reflect on relationships, memories, fantasies, addiction, sexual violence and trauma.

The exhibition will remain on display through December 13. The gallery is open by appointment only.
