Kristy Bishop is a fiber artist focused on weaving, natural dyeing, surface design, and historically-inspired costume. She lives and works in Charleston and has participated in artist residencies at the city of North Charleston in 2012-2013 and at 701 CCA in 2015. At the Gibbes, she will weave tapestries inspired by fabrics depicted in objects on view in the Black Refractions exhibition. These tapestries will be transformed to a more utilitarian fabric, questioning ideas of labor and how it is valued.
