Stockpiler’s Contemporary Threads showcase marks their fifth of six showcases slated for 2018. Stockpiler; Christopher Dibble, a portrait and interiors photographer and weaver, and Mariel Pitti, artist and former Gallery Store Director of Museum of Contemporary Craft, is a Creative Community Connector. We work closely with early and mid-career artists to curate and produce showcases and events. Sharing our passion for fine art, craft, and design with the public, Stockpiler acts as a roaming gallery, popping up in different locations, curating shows inspired by that particular venue.
