The LAB is pleased to present an exhibition of soft sculpture works by Seattle-based artist Jennifer McNeely in the Front Gallery. McNeely's primary inspiration comes from similar works from the 1970s as well as the arts and crafts movement and her own vast collection of nylons, hats, gloves, curlers and other feminine symbols. McNeely's work demonstrates a keen interest in the culture of women. She sets her focus on the time women spend on maintenance, repair and improvement -- on physical appearance, on relationships, and on the world around us. McNeely works with the belief that one's character inhabits personal items; her work transcends a focus on the object itself. Her beautiful and elegant sculptures are at once homemade and modern.
