About

American, b. 1992   —   Mariah Gillespie, currently living and working in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma is an artist working in textile and fiber. Within her practice she explores quilt-making, patchwork, hand painted textiles, one of a kind accessories, and other textile processes. Originally from Norman, Oklahoma, she grew up paying witness to the ways in which her grandmothers and great-grandmothers cherished arts and crafts, particularly that of fiber crafts. It is this that has led to her fondness of hand-work practices that traditionally have been referred to as "women's work". Exploring these methods of art making manifests in her life as a spiritual and material connection to women makers who have come before her, particularly those from her family. Mariah's work was most recently featured in multiple Piecework Collective exhibitions in NYC that celebrated quilting through 12 artists works from across the U.S. and Canada. She was awarded as a Studio Resident with the Charlotte Street Foundation’s Urban Culture Project in 2014, where she co-founded a design collaboration called TWO. In June 2015, TWO debuted their first collection of apparel and accessories at the 15th Annual West 18th Street Fashion Show. Her work has been viewed across the United States in cities like Kansas City, Oklahoma City, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, New York City, and more.
