ReDesign EXHIBITION

ReDesign exhibition launches today at Sidney Larson Gallery, Columbia College; Columbia, MO.

ReDesign Exhibition 2021 Poster

Co-curated by (power duo!) Bethanie Irons and Danielle Langdon, ReDesign surveys the many ways design informs and directs how people interact and appreciate their everyday experiences and sense of being.

Displaying a range of approaches–from quilting to digital designing, cyanotype to letterpress printing, are ReDesign participating artists who implement color, shape, pattern, space and “text-ure” (referring to the feeling or nature of a surface, and the idea of “text” to “-ure,” that is,  “indicating an act, process or result”) with shared qualities and instincts.
