Santa Barbara Fiber Arts Guild lecture by Lesley Roberts
On June 5th at 10:00 a.m. via Zoom, the Santa Barbara Fiber Arts Guild welcomes guest presenter, Lesley Roberts. Lesley will be talking about her art practice and the way she sees her work transforming the community in which she lives. As an art history major who was trained how to look, Lesley is deeply enmeshed in storytelling and visualization.
In her words, Lesley states:
“The structure of this talk borrows from Suzi Gablik’s The Reenchantment of Art. In it, I found a narrative that puts words and shape to a vision I had been developing: a practice of making a new kind of life, a new kind of living.”
Join us to hear about how two projects that both illustrate the nature of Lesley’s practice and offer space for engagement through her involvement with Textile Month Los Angeles and the Slow and Local Clothing Project through the So Cal Fibershed.
Lesley Roberts is a native Angeleno who works and plays in the spaces between culture, material, and imagination. Lesley holds a BFA in Art History from UCLA and a certificate from UCLA Anderson’s Executive Education program. She is the executive director of Textile Arts | Los Angeles, and the lead for the Southern California chapter of Fibershed. Lesley is also the principal of Oceanparkstudio, a marketing and strategy firm that believes in the power of thoughtful ideas, creative vision, and clarity of purpose to achieve meaningful change and growth.
