Shelley Spector: Deck Groove
EKG Exhibition Space at the Science Center
February 17 – March 30, 2012
Reception: February 17th, 5 – 8pm
Dreck Groove is a collection of embroideries on fabric, repurposed from shirts, pants, and other clothing. Presented in frames fabricated from discarded wood scraps, the imagery is based on the extreme environmental events during the summer of 2011. These works are partnered with site-specific wallpaper created from reclaimed cardboard, once used to package food, toys, and other daily purchases in the artist’s Philadelphia community. Shelley Spector is a current Breadboard Artist-in-Residence at NextFab Studio, a high-tech workshop and prototyping center located at the University City Science Center.
