Comfort Tub is a collaborative show featuring the work of Printmaking and Book Arts MFA candidate Megan Burchett and textile artist Maddie Zerkel. For several years, both artists have been exploring the potential that exists at the intersection of paper and fiber arts. With Comfort Tub, they focus on the domestic applications of paper and cloth to examine intimacy, familiarity, and the interior. Curated by Megan Burchett.
