Camela Guevara

May 3, 2021 - May 30, 2021

Camela Guevara is a fiber artist and painter from Charleston, SC. She creates handmade monuments to unsung labor, as well as expressive paintings in gouache seeking to create dream-like worlds using amorphous forms and transparent washes to create a healing modality in which to process emotions in vivid colors. Employing traditional techniques of the past and re-contextualizing everyday objects, the artist subverts capitalistic ideals of consumption with a can-do attitude and self-reliance. During her residency, Guevara will merge her two practices of sewing and painting while engaging Museum visitors by asking them to rethink their connection to cloth.

Guevara has exhibited at Greenville Center for Creative Arts, North Charleston City Hall, Virago Gallery, and at Redux Contemporary Art Center.
