Holding Space

Beverly Gordon

Made from local materials: stems of the compass plant, a tall prairie guardian with square stems that serve as insect habitat; paper birch; and (purple) Baraboo quartzite rock. A witnessing presence at the gateway to the sanctuary.

Beverly Gordon recently retired from 30 years as a professor in Design Studies at UW-Madison, where she taught classes relating to design and our cultural environment. She is a writer (most recent book: Textiles: The Whole Story: Uses, Meanings, Significance), and a visual artist whose work typically involves re-contextualization—repositioning and reusing images in collage.
