Mychaelyn Michalec: From A Basement On A Hill

THE IRA AND SUSAN THOMSEN FAMILY GALLERY

Friday, August 6 through Sunday, October 24, 2021

The premiere of a new body of work by Dayton-based artist, Mychaelyn Michalec, consisting of embroidered “drawings” and deeply textured tufted rug “paintings” that conflate issues of craft and cultural value. Using her own family as her primary subject, she depicts those closest to her, illustrating moments of simultaneous disconnection and connection; the paradigm of the contemporary American family.

This project was supported by an Artist Opportunity Grant funded by the Montgomery County Arts & Cultural District and administered by Culture Works.
