Grace McKnight pays tribute to women everywhere who produce the delicate form of a doily especially to the women who created, recycled and upcycled before it was fashionable. She also pays a tribute to her own personal feminine lineage. For Grace, crocheting is a contemplative bridge where creativity and spirituality are woven together. In our upcoming exhibit at DesBrisay Museum, Crochet: Vintage Inspired, McKnight invites the viewer to look more closely and consider how much skill, time and energy is required to produce the delicate forms of a doily. She does this by altering the doily, through scale and mixed media application.

McKnight’s exhibit of works will be on display at DesBrisay Museum

from October 1st, 2018 to January 2nd, 2019.

The exhibit has its opening on Sunday September 30th, 2018 at 2 pm at 130 Jubilee Road.
