This month in the Lobby Art Gallery we present Travis Meinolf (Weaver/Lagunitas).
Join Travis at their IN-PERSON reception in the Dance Palace lobby on Sunday, September 24 from 2-4pm.
Travis Meinolf (they/them, born 1978) is a weaver who also teaches and distributes weaving tools, aiming to make the simple and productive process accessible to those who find it satisfying. To that end, they have established a small weaving studio in San Anselmo equipped with floor looms and back strap looms. In addition, they conduct public workshops at libraries and museums, as well as community classes at the Richmond Art Center. Travis has woven pieces for prominent exhibitions such as the Whitney Biennial and for the collection of the SFMOMA, along with other arts institutions and numerous private collections. Their current work concerns basic themes of shelter/protection using colorful abstraction/figuration and living in the gray areas between sculpture, painting and design. They live in Lagunitas with Iris and their son Louie. BA Industrial Arts SFSU MFA Textiles/Social Practices CCA.
