A few weeks ago I had a Zoom interview with Kasey from the Laramie County Library. Kasey was gathering information for a blog post she would write about my library exhibition, Textile Stories. She did a great job capturing what the exhibit portrays and how it seamlessly connects with what the library is all about. Read the selected passages below and you'll want to follow the link and read the whole post! I've said it before and I'll say it again.... Cheyenne has a great library!
"Choosing textiles as her medium is what makes Rowswell’s art so unique, and so layered with meaning. The materials themselves are woven with stories, stories of how the piece of clothing came to Rowswell and stories of who made the piece of clothing to begin with.
The idea of knowing someone’s story, gathering information about their background and investing time and effort in learning more about them fits perfectly within the confines of a library, a place dedicated to the continual pursuit of knowledge and the dissemination of stories. Like Rowswell’s exhibit, the library harbors personal stories, local stories, universal stories, and global stories."
