DEBBIE MCMAHON FIBER ART SYMPOSIUM
Sat, Jan 14 | 2pm
Speakers: Joan Hall and Michelle Samour
Russell Hill Rogers Lecture Hall | Santikos Building
Reception to follow.

The 2017 Debbie McMahon Fiber Arts Symposium will take place Saturday, January 14th and will feature two nationally known artists, Joan Hall and Michelle Samour. The two will speak on the subject of papermaking, which is often considered to fall within the larger context of the fiber arts. During the symposium, the women will highlight their works, which incorporate paper pulp and which are included in a current exhibition at The Southwest School of Art titled, Beck Whitehead & Pulparazzi, on view through January 15th. The symposium, which was established in 2010, was named in honor of a longtime San Antonio resident Debbie McMahon. McMahon passed away in September of 2007 and was an accomplished and devoted fiber artist who participated as a student and Trustee at the Southwest School of Art. We are very grateful to Joe McMahon Jr. for creating an endowment in Debbie’s name to facilitate this annual conversation on contemporary fiber arts.
