I was recently introduced to the summer activities of artist Ricki Dwyer, including their time as weaving faculty for the Black Mountain School, printmaking faculty for The Oxbow School, a residency at Front/Space in Kansas City, and the tour for their embroidery project Tim Kerr Made Me Do It.
Ricki Dwyer grew up in the Bay Area, has lived in various regions, graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design in Fiber Arts. And has now been living in Chinatown for three years working as a teacher, bar tender and artist. Ricki is finishing the tour of their embroidery project Tim Kerr Made Me Do It with a San Francisco performance at Artist Television Access this Friday night 9/23 -with music and video by Shea Cote and Ian Vanek.
I met with Ricki to talk about their recently project and summer experience. See the interview and photos below.
