Fuller Craft Museum Presents Changing Waters: An Installation by Nathalie Miebach

Fuller Craft Museum, New England’s home for contemporary craft presents Changing Waters, an installation by Boston-based artist Nathalie Miebach, who expresses weather and environment as art. The exhibition runs from Jan. 15—Sept. 25, 2011.

Nathalie Miebach is known for her basket weaving and structured representations of scientific data. For her installation, Miebach will create a combination of wall and suspended works based on the weather and marine environmental data collected from the Gulf of Maine. Combining basket weaving techniques and information-graphics, Miebach creates works on the margins of craft, landscape, and representational art.

Miebach holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Political Science from Oberlin College, OH, and both a Master of Art Education and Master of Fine Arts from Massachusetts College of Art. She is the recipient of numerous awards and residencies, including the Massachusetts Cultural Council Fellowship, Blanche E. Colman Award, the International Sculpture Outstanding Student Award, a LEF grant, two Fine Arts Work Center Fellowships, a Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts Residency, and the Berwick Research Institute Residency. Most recently, she was the Artist in Residence at Amherst College. Her work has been shown nationally and throughout New England and has been reviewed in many publications, including Art In America, Art News and Sculpture Magazine.
