“These Things Are Tangible,” an exhibit featuring three contemporary fiber artists, recently opened at the Galleries of Contemporary Art at UCCS.

The exhibit, which was awarded a grant from the CU President’s Fund for the Humanities, is on display through March 18 at the campus GOCA1420 location.

The work of Claudia Mastrobuono, Jodi Stevens and Sonya Yong James – independently and collaboratively – is featured. It investigates and pushes the edges of what is possible with sculptural fibers.

Using their medium as a framework, all three artists engage with the concepts of self-discovery, gender and labor, reflecting on an art practice rooted in their experiences as women and makers, as well as the political legacy of fiber art.
