Opening Reception Stringer Lode

She Works Flexible is proud to present Stringer Lode, an exhibition of new work by Lily Cox-Richard. Stringer Lode which will conclude this round of programming at our current location. Stringer Lode will be on view from February 19-April 9, 2016, with an opening reception on Friday, February 19 from 7-9pm.
This exhibition inaugurates a new body of work for Lily Cox-Richard, centered on the systems, widespread but largely unnoticed, that undergird more conspicuous structures. Mycelia, the fungal equivalent of a root system, can sprawl wider than football fields, invisible but for a few mushroom caps. Cottage industries, far from the heaving global marketplace, provide solid local economic footing and hark back to social arrangements that will more than likely never be completely displaced. And the plumbing and wiring in our walls really only get our attention when they stop working.
