Jennifer Edwards won Best In Show at CCAC’s annual 2016 Golden Ticket. Her series of work looks at iconic guns with a historic lens and examines their use in more than a dozen different categories including hunting, military, and cinema. The intent of the exhibit is to open a broader conversation about gun control and the 2nd Amendment. “What I’ve noticed,” says Edwards, “is that a lack of conversation between these polarizing viewpoints wherein nothing is accomplished.” Edwards hopes that by submitting the subject in this soft sculpture format (crochet), the absurd effect will “disarm” the viewer, allowing a more open conversation to occur. The presentation also serves to highlight the craftsmanship of firearms and underscore how they have influenced modern society. Exhibit runs October 13 – November 3.
