Artist in Residence Program

The San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles' Artist in Residence program began in October 2016 with an incredible response from the local community, Museum Members, and Visitors.  We host an artist or collaborative group every three months. Artists have an onsite open studio during their three month residency in our newly renovated Maker Space. Our AIR program also provides exhibition space for each artist in our Maker Space Gallery.

MARGARET TIMBRELL

September 7 - december 2018

Margaret Timbrell uses humor in her embroidery works to examine the way language is used today through technology. The San Francisco based artist adapts phone texts that have been altered incorrectly through the use of auto correct. Her work poses questions regarding the quality of language and how we communicate/miscommunicate with one another.
