Screening to showcase Stevens artwork
The longtime Washington resident will showcase her artistic ingenuity in the recently produced documentary “Missy Stevens, The Spirit and Technique of Painting and Thread.”
Stevens’ thread paintings are one-of-a-kind embroideries known for their rich color and playful spirit. In the film Stevens explains her discovery of the punch-needle and its use in fine art. Going beyond technique, the film reveals how her spiritual journey creates inspired imagery, connection to nature and a sense of purpose.
Following the screening there will be a question-and-answer session with Stevens and the writer and producer of the documentary, Rusty Dyer of DigiDyer Productions.
Refreshments will be served.
Stevens’ thread paintings have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in galleries and museums throughout the United States.
She is the recipient of numerous awards and honors. She received an individual artist grant from the Connecticut Commission on the Arts and the Craftsmen Choice Award at the Smithsonian Craft Show in 2001.
