Shelley Socolofsky is an artist and educator drawing inspiration from local histories, memory, and textiles. Considering the action of weaving as an interlacement of opposing systems, her work investigates cloth making and production as a platform for social activism.
Currently on the faculty of Oregon College of Art & Craft, she holds an MFA from the University of Oregon, with earlier studies in medieval Gobelins Tapestry and western art history in Poitier, Paris, and Uzes, France, Jacquard hand weaving at the Fondazione Arte Della Seta Lisio in Florence, Italy, and digital Jacquard CAD design at the Jacquard Center in North Carolina.
