As part of Arts Slope’s week-long events, artist Neil Goss will weave and install one of his totems along the Third Street fence at Washington Park.
Neil lives in the countryside of Eudora, KS where he focuses his art on Earth processes, and the human impact on the natural world. In 2012 he received two BFA’s in Design (Textiles and Ceramics) from the University of Kansas SOTA. He has been dedicated to researching sustainable arts processes such as natural dyeing, weaving, utilizing hand-dug clay, and foraging art materials. Goss has taught workshops, installed public art and presented artist talks from coast to coast in the United States. He is currently a practicing artist and artist-in-residence at the Charlotte Street Foundation and teaches at the Lawrence Arts Center. Recently, he has been included in the Lawrence Outdoor Downtown Sculpture Exhibition, Art in the Loop’s Ilus Davis Art in the Park Project in Kansas City and the third Charlotte Street Foundation Visiting Curator group show, “Sincerely Yours,” at the Paragraph Gallery in KC.
