Juror Talk: The Wondermaker Collective

Thursday, November 10th 4:50-5:30pm
Studio Arts, Room 411
The Wondermakers Collective is a collaborative embroidery project created by Mindy Sue Meyers and Jenna Freimuth.
We attended the same college at different times, connected on social media, and now mail art back and forth between Michigan and Minnesota. Our name The Wondermakers was conceived by the idea of simply wondering what we could make together. Mindy makes embellished, abstract soft sculptures, and Jenna draws lush, patterned illustrations. As we navigated how to blend our unique artistic styles into a long-distance collaboration, our dense embroidered pieces started to emerge. With the limitless combination of color and texture possible within our embroideries, we continue to explore creating wonder and curiosity in our work.
Our embroideries start with one of us putting down some stitches and then mailing it off to the other person. Nothing is drawn out ahead of time or preplanned. Every embroidery is a response to the other’s mark-making and a metaphysical representation of our two styles colliding. As the layers build and stitches accumulate, a hint of an imaginary world is created within the hoop.
