Don’t miss out on Warmth, closing this week.

On the walls of Griffin & Mandeville (8338 Comanche NE), where art meets yoga meets coffee, J.A. Zona has taken the recycling of clothing to an aesthetic extreme with Warmth. Reducing heaps of discarded sweaters, coats, skirts and shirts to mere strips with nothing more than a pair of scissors, the artist reassembles them as vast, loose hangings by knotting, weaving, tying and braiding the pieces of cloth back together. “These forms are enormous,” she points out, “and make the viewer feel like they’re in another universe.” Comfort and strangeness emanate from these gorgeous, exaggerated constructions—see for yourself, but quick, because the show’s closing reception happens Saturday, March 8, from 5 to 8pm.
