Alternative Life
By San Francisco based Textile Artist Jeremy Chase Sanders

"Alternative Life" 2010, detail, hand woven cotton, pigmented ink on cotton. 24"x24"

The type of synesthesia that artist Jeremy Chase Sanders experiences causes him to see a particular color associated with every number and letter of the alphabet (ie ‘2’ is red, ‘E’ is green).  He dyes threads to match the colors he sees in language and weaves cloth with coded text.  By imbuing cloth with coded meaning and fashioning it into particular patterns and forms, he examines the words we share and the intricate political hierarchies at play within our language.

Jeremy Chase Sanders moved from Baltimore to San Francisco in the late 1990’s where he earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Printmaking from the San Francisco Art Institute, and a Master of Fine Arts in Textiles from California College of Arts & Crafts.

Also, showing in our Corridor Exhibition Space will be members of the Hyattsville Community Arts Alliance.

This weekend is the last chance to see Vintage Visions, African American Cinema Posters which closes on Saturday at Gallery 110, and there is only one week left to see Impressed: New Visions in Printmaking at the Brentwood Arts Exchange.

So, if you don’t make it to the opening on Friday evening, Saturday afternoon would be a great time to see these shows in all three galleries at the Gateway Arts Center.  Specific gallery hours are in the right-hand column – from 12:00-4:00pm on Saturday all three will be open.
