Explore mending across Madison through a series of events hosted in partnership by Madison Public Library, The Mending Project, the James Watrous Gallery, and Center for Design and Material Culture at UW-Madison's School of Human Ecology.

Join us at the gallery for artist talks from Glenn Williams, Siara Berry, and Sylvie Rosenthal, artists whose work is featured in MEND: the work of repair. 

Sylvie Rosenthal, Hands (remainders + entanglements), 1 of 5 assembled and carved hands, 2001/2023. Laminated pine, plywood, dowels, screws, paint, 27” x 29” x 13”

There is so much in the wider world that needs repair right now. It can feel impossible to respond in a meaningful way or identify the tools and skills that might make a difference.

Lisa Marie Barber's ceramic assemblages and textiles encompass her imagined, decorative conceptions of home, gardens, peacefulness, playfulness, and celebration.

Jayne King's ceramic vessels explore the nature of memory, nostalgia and personal narrative, and how Jewish tradition informs their relationship to their family’s past and present. 

Mary Burns' hand-woven jacquard portraits celebrate and honor water, as well as the women who work with it, protect it and advocate for it.

In collaboration with her father who passed in 2021, Madeline Grace Martin's work honors his life as poet and writer.

Drawing is a way of thinking. Like writing, drawing clarifies. It deepens our understanding.
