The Art is Her exhibition series celebrates women artists and champions their goal of achieving museum presence equal to men. TMA dedicates its atrium to a series of solo exhibitions by women artists and reminds visitors that equal representation has yet to be achieved in art today.
Abby Gammons is an emerging artist based in Little Chute, Wisconsin. She recently started working with fiber art by accident in 2016 while decorating her room. She found inspiration on Pinterest that spoke to her Scandinavian and Mid Century-modern style and it had a macramé weaving in it. Back then she didn’t know what it was or how to pronounce it but loved how it brought a soft and warm presence to the room. She experiences meditation through each movement while practicing 3-4 knots in a variation of patterns and textiles.Her style of work today is described as Modern Macramé with a nod to the 70s for its textured flair. Abby’s textile art has been featured in the Trout Museum of Art Made to Order exhibit in 2020, private residences, and in weddings around Wisconsin.
Pick a cord and follow its path. Between each wrap, knot and twist a textured canvas is formed from ¼ inch 3 strand cotton rope. Soft and pliable, each tapestry has unique organic movements paired with symmetry in repetitive patterns. Abby invites you to touch and feel each piece while embracing the nature of the materials.
