Jeana Eve Klein, Recent Activity

Artspace welcomes PNC Pop In Artist in Residence Jeana Eve Klein for the month of July. Jeana Eve Klein will work on her textile installation project Recent Activity, which presents an idealized version of the artist as activist through the lens of social media. This documentation – via hand-cut recycled lettering – will engage with the Raleigh community through the collaborative sourcing of data. Klein’s residency culminates in a one – month exhibition held in the Upfront Gallery and Lobby space

Jeana Eve Klein lives in Boone, North Carolina with her husband and two kids, and is Associate Professor of Fibers in the Art Department at Appalachian State University. Klein’s work has been exhibited internationally, including recent solo exhibitions at William King Museum, Abingdon, VA; Jasper Arts Center, Jasper, IN; Rehoboth Art League, Rehoboth, DE; College of Lake County, Grayslake, IL; and Cary Arts Center, Cary, NC.

Site-Specific Installation:
Tedd Anderson

Davie St Entrance

Tedd Anderson’s mural features the iconic “dry space” characters for which the artist is known set in a landscape filled with swirling, topographic lines, jagged edges, and meditative objects and shapes. A banner with a poem scrawled on its surface runs through the piece, bringing the imagery into a cohesive whole.
