Welcome, Sylvia Schieber
Artist in Residence - February & March, 2023
Sylvia, aka Maske Maiden, creates masks from mundane objects and materials, transmuting the components themselves to bring a fresh perspective to her work. Informed by her years as a freelance fashion designer and seamstress, Sylvia’s mask-making aesthetic employs traditional tailoring techniques and materials. Unlike more conventional masks which are molded and rigid, Sylvia describes her pieces as “soft sculptures'' and is inspired by fashion, nature, and the mystery and magic that masks invoke.
How to engage with the Bryn Du Artist in Residence!
All Artist in Residence events are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted, and family-friendly.
