alison pebworth: vintage roadside show & tell patches

Vintage Roadside Show & Tell Embroidered Patches
individually wrapped embroidered patches

Alison has been making “street side” projects locally and nationally since 2004 under the rubric of the Roadside Show & Tell, a series of interactive roadside attractions and related projects created in the spirit of the 19th century American traveling show. In 2006, she traveled cross-country for eight months developing Looking for Lost America, a research project of the Roadside Show and Tell. This trip was the inspiration for Beautiful Possibility, her current traveling exhibition and research project that took her on a five-month tour to eight venues across northern United States and southern Canada. The Center for Cultural Innovation has supported the Beautiful Possibility project through a Planning Grant (2007), Implementation Grant (2008) and Artistic Innovation Grant (2010). Southern Exposure in San Francisco launched Beautiful Possibility with an exhibition and printed catalog in Spring 2010. www.alisonpebworth.com

gabrielle teschner: portable arch

Portable Arch
fabric sculpture packaged in cigar box

Each box holds one muslin arch measuring 30” wide. It is made to be portable, accompanying its traveler from one doorway to the next, cutting the space beyond it in precisely the same way as every location before it. There is an opening at the top for a tension rod installed in the doorjamb, or it can be easily tacked to the top of a doorway frame. The shape is architecturally accurate to Iranian masonry plans.
Gabrielle Teschner is an artist living and working in the Bay Area from coastal Virginia. She received her BFA in Sculpture from Virginia Commonwealth University, and her MFA in Sculpture from California College of the Arts. Much of her research is performed abroad. She works with maps, cultural architecture, and instructional texts on geometry, timepieces, and machine technology, illustrating the persistent mystery of our discoveries, and the stilling properties of the unknown.
