Unraveling: Camille Hawbaker, M.F.A.

Monday, November 17, 2014 to Friday, January 30, 2015

Congratulations to Camille Hawbaker for the very positive review in the Journal Star this weekend by L. Kent Wolgamott claiming "Unraveling" is, simply, one of the best Lincoln exhibitions of 2014. Read L. Kent Wolgamott's review here.

An exhibition of mixed media work by Lincoln artist Camille Hawbaker entitled “Unraveling” opens on November 17, 2014 and continues through January 30, 2015 in the Robert Hillestad Textiles Gallery on the University of Nebraska’s east campus.  The public is invited to a free reception honoring the artist on Friday, January 16, 2015 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the gallery.

Camille Hawbaker is a visiting faculty member in the Department of Textiles, Merchandising & Fashion Design for the 2014-15 Academic Year.  Ms. Hawbaker earned her M.F.A. in 2014 from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's distinguished printmaking program, under the direction of Karen Kunc and Francisco Souto. Hawbaker combines her knowledge of etching, drawing, and textile design techniques to create dynamic and meditative works in paper and fiber.  Through expressive line work in thread and ink, she builds a vocabulary of organic forms which speak of the duality between structure and chaos, creation and destruction, intuition and deduction - resulting in what the artist describes as "reflections of inherent principles of design governed by natural growth."

The Robert Hillestad Textiles Gallery is a vital academic and community outreach vehicle of the Department of Textiles, Merchandising & Fashion Design in the UNL College of Education and Human Sciences. The gallery is located on the second floor of the Human Sciences Building on East Campus, at 35th Street north of East Campus Loop (map at http://go.unl.edu/j5v). Hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday-Friday. Admission is free. Guest parking is available near the building and metered stalls are located in the Nebraska East Union lot. For more information, call (402) 472-2911.
