Our fall Stair-gazing exhibition features the work of Theda Sandiford, a collage, mixed media, and installation artist who is based in Jersey City. In Wonder Women, Sandiford combines drawing, photography, digital media, and found objects to make a large-scale self-portrait on fabric. In the tradition of the sewing circle or quilting bee, she invited members of the community to help her sew embellishments such as buttons, beads, artificial flowers, and other ephemera.
