Gabrielle Duggan (b. Buffalo, NY) combines techniques of traditional fiber work with disparate materials and contexts to explore physical and social tension.
Building from an education in Fine Arts and Fashion (SUNY Buffalo, FIT) and Fibers and Surface Design (NCSU, Master of Art and Design), Duggan’s work has been supported by the NC Arts Council (RAPG), Art on the Atlanta Beltline (GA), Artspace PopUp (NC), and exhibitions at the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art, Flanders, and Lump (NC), and Garis & Hahn (New York, NY by AH Arts).
Duggan has been an Artist in Residence at the Musk Ox Farm (AK), IndieGrits (SC), Governors Island Art Fair (NY), and Artspace (NC); a Knight Foundation Emerging Artist at Ponyride (MI); a Fellow at Salem Art Works (NY); and recently an R.R. Dunn Artist in Residence at Adrian Smith’s laboratory in the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences.
Duggan has taught Textiles at Georgia State University and North Carolina State University, and is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of North Texas.
