Artists in This beautiful tangle spread their arms out to enmesh themselves with the universe. Relationships are explored—those with ancestors and strangers, communities and country. Some artists encourage a connection to the local through the natural environment. Others crawl deep into intimate entwinings where they gladly lose themselves to another. “This beautiful tangle” represents a dynamic range of media exploring a breadth of ideas that come together under the premise that, over time, the connections we make, this weaving of beings and places, continue to form us. Sixteen artists or artist groups are represented, with many of the works being installations developed for the exhibition. Textiles used and found, murals, cross-stitching, leaf gathering, eye-reading, chair-kissing works will fill the Dalton Gallery.

Includes work by Scott Belville, Didi Dunphy, Steve Eberhardt, Julia A. Fenton, Heather M. Foster, Molly Rose Freeman, Bessie Harvey, Hope Hilton, George Long, Aubrey Longley-Cook, Charlie Lucas, Forest McMullin, Mario Petrirena, Jessica Scott-Felder, Karen Tauches & Calvin Burgamy, and Cosmo Whyte.
