At this year’s Columbus Arts Festival, the Short North Arts District will be featuring an installation by ROY G BIV Gallery artist Brittni Stump. The District will also have a few great gifts for you or a loved one at the booth.
Brittni is a textile artist who is excited by repurposing discarded materials from everyday life. Manipulating objects like receipts, plastic bags, parking tickets, and cassette tape, she then lays her seemingly mundane treasures in a wash of bright colors. Stump applies her unconventional materials to traditional textile techniques, such as hand weaving, coiling and embroidery. Her latest approach has been constructing soft fiber sculptures from her weavings; continuing her play with form, material, and color off of the loom.
