About Candace Hill Montgomery

Candace Hill Montgomery (American, b. 1945) makes weavings that explore the many ways in which threads can tell stories and make cultural commentary. Using a wide variety of fibers—linen, cashmere, cotton, wool, even horsehair—she creates complex layers of allegories and fables that reference her own life as well as current social and political challenges. While creating this visual dialogue about race, feminism, poverty, and the environment, Hill Montgomery integrates subtle inner observations into the weaves. Made on handmade looms, the works are mounted on fabricated hangers, found objects, or vintage farm equipment from the South that reference her family’s heritage. Her partnership with the Sag Harbor Whaling & Historical Museum resonates with her visits to the museum as a child during summer vacations spent in Sag Harbor with her family.

Hill Montgomery’s work has been presented in exhibitions at major arts institutions, including the Bronx Museum for the Arts, New Museum, Printed Matter, Artists Space, Franklin Furnace, Fashion Moda, and Creative Time, among others. She was an artist-in-residence at the Studio Museum in Harlem (1979), and a recipient of the John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship (1985) and a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts (1981). In 1985, Hill Montgomery curated a group exhibition including Lorna Simpson with Lucy R. Lippard titled Working Women/Working Artists/Working Together at Gallery 1199. Her work is in the Digital Archive of the New Museum. Her essays have been published in the Women’s Art Journal. She received a master’s degree in Art Education from Hunter College.

 

About Laurie Lambrecht

Laurie Lambrecht, a native of Bridgehampton who works in photography and fiber, has been featured in numerous solo exhibitions in the U.S. and abroad, and her photographs are in the collections of the National Gallery of Art, D.C., and the Parrish Art Museum, among others. In the early 1990’s, as administrative assistant to Roy Lichtenstein, Lambrecht photographed the artist and his process. Roy Lichtenstein in His Studio, the monograph of her project, was published by Monacelli Press in 2011. She has worked with theater artist Robert Wilson at the Watermill Center since 1993, and from 2012–2014 Lambrecht photographed a documentary project for the Rauschenberg Foundation (Florida). She was recently a fellow at artist residencies there and at the Virginia Center of the Creative Arts and Vermont Studio Center. This spring Lambrecht will be an artist in residence at the Watermill Center

Lambrecht has taught workshops in the Literacy through Photography program in Medellin, Colombia, and locally, at Project Most in Bridgehampton and the Art Barge in Montauk. She has given talks about her work at The Morgan Library, New York, and The Art Institute of Chicago, and The National Gallery of Art, among other venues.
