About The Gallery Store
The Gallery Store at the Museum of Contemporary Craft (MoCC) features beautifully handcrafted objects with a modern design focus. From one-of-a-kind legacy pieces by nationally known craft artists, many of whom are in the Museum’s collection, to fresh work by up and coming Northwest designers and artists, the work is selected to reflect the Museum’s mission and longstanding commitment to incorporating the beauty of craft and design into the rhythms of everyday life.
Established in 1937, the Museum of Contemporary Craft renovated the Gallery Store in 2012. Today the Gallery Store features work by hundreds of artists and craftspeople and supports the mission of MoCC, a national treasure as the country’s oldest museum dedicated to contemporary craft.
Bridging Downtown, Old Town and The Pearl, the Gallery Store is midway between Powell’s Books and the Lan Su Chinese Garden in the gallery-rich DeSoto building just off from NW Broadway.
Storefront Residency Project features Artists-in-Residence from the Oregon College of Art & Craft Fibers Department, August 5 – 23, 2014
The Storefront Residency Project bridges Gallery Store and Museum to create a visible platform for demonstrations and discussions relating to the materials, processes, and products of contemporary craft and design. In August, MoCC presents Thread Lines, an interactive collaborative project organized by the Oregon College of Art & Craft (OCAC) Fibers Department. Residency project participants include: OCAC BFA students and alumni; students and alumni of Applied Craft & Design, a joint MFA program of OCAC + Pacific Northwest College of Art; and Fibers Department faculty and staff. Throughout the three-week Storefront Residency project, participants will reflect on their everyday experiences through collaborative mapping and sewing. Each day several project members will record their daily commute through hand stitching on suspended fabric maps of the city, creating a communal record of daily activities as well as an opportunity to meditate and communicate daily experiences through pattern, color, and texture.
On Saturdays, museum visitors will be invited to sit down and embroider their own paths onto the map. A project representative will be present to explain the project to museum visitors while also working on the map.
Public Participation Schedule:
Saturday August 9th, 11:00am – 6:00pm
Saturday August 16th, 11:00am – 6:00pm
Saturday August 23rd, 11:00am – 6:00pm
Project Participants: Ximena Bedoya, Melina Bishop, Leah Brottman, Emily Cobb, Amy Conway, Jennifer Cooke, Molly Eno, Kaylin Francis, Jessica Hickey, Courtney Howard, Heather Lowe, Emily Nachison, Roberta Olson, Leigh Radford, Una Rose, Emily Silvis, Madeleine Soich, Karyssa Stearns, Mary Wilson, Lily Walton
