"StowAway", a project featured in the Cross Pollination exhibition at Gutstein Gallery in Savannah GA, is a project spearheaded by Sara Rabinowitz, professor of fibers, with significant contributions by Katie Buchanan, professor of fibers; Sheila Edwards, professor of furniture design; Scot Hinson (B.F.A., painting, 1991); Anna Keck (M.F.A., fibers, 2009, B.F.A., fibers, 1991); Anastasia Macdonald (B.F.A., illustration, 2003); Jean Mason (M.F.A. fibers) and Candance Parton, professor of accessory design. Rabinowitz adopted the conceptual framework of a store to reference practices of commerce, labor and production, and invited her collaborators to form reactions to the invasive redbay ambrosia beetle currently impacting the ecology of the southeastern United States. The beetle, indigenous to Asia, was introduced to the area in 2002 via a shipping pallet, and continues to devastate laurel trees. Participating artists produced objects related to the infestation materially, visually and illustratively.
