Today In The Culture, October 28, 2021: The Art of Agave
Agave In The Gallery
Epiphany Center for the Arts is launching “Agave!,” a group exhibition featuring artwork made from agave leaves discarded during the production of the mezcal spirit. The show runs Saturday, November 6 through April 9, 2022. The collection is curated by Trine Ellitsgaard and Kiff Slemmons, and ranges from prints and sculptures to carpets, furniture and apparel. “The artists featured in ‘Agave!’ have responded to this environmental crisis by transforming these discarded leaves into fantastic pieces of design,” said Epiphany’s director of art and programming Aaron Baker. “They are participating in a virtuous cycle of turning a problem into an opportunity, of turning waste into beautiful, timeless objects. We are thrilled to be able to showcase their innovative artwork.” The opening reception is Saturday, November 6, 6pm-9pm. The exhibition is free and open to the public; tickets here.
