Our current exhibition, Fragile Not Found, will include an artist talk by Molly Hassler. Please join us!



About the artist:

Through embroidery, repetitive hand stitching, printing and dyeing techniques, Molly Hassler actively sews up the past - literally and metaphorically mending. Her fine art practice rests most comfortably between peculiar three dimensional object hood and semi-narrative works containing drawing and text that speak to the sweetness and trauma of queer coming of age. Enamored with the quilts of Gee's Bend and the history of making due, she pieces together fabric as fragments of memory or lack thereof.

Hassler is a Bachelor of Fine Arts graduate from University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee with an emphasis in Fibers and a Certificate in Community Arts. Hassler has shown her work in solo and group exhibitions at Gluon Gallery, Real Tinsel, and Yours Truly Studio. She has also had her work featured in Duomo IV, Duomo V publications, and Urban Milwaukee. In 2016 and 2017 Hassler was awarded with the Elsa Ulbricht Scholarship and the Mary E. Deven Memorial Scholarship. Currently working at the UWM Center for Community-based Learning, Leadership, and Research as the Student Artist in Residence Coordinator, she instructs and manages five fine arts students carrying out residencies in Milwaukee Retirement Communities.
