In 1996, artist Elizabeth Keithline invented a sculpture technique wherein wire is woven around an object and then burned out, leaving behind a wire ‘memory’. She has created gallery-sized installations, (including a full-scale wire house and a woven 1969 Dodge Charger) for the Danforth Museum, Wheaton College, Real Art Ways, Craft Alliance St. Louis, the Newport Art Museum and the Contemporary Art Institute of Detroit. She currently has two public art projects installed – one in Oxford, MA and the other in North Bennington, VT. This fall she will weave a tree and birds for the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA.
Keithline does business as Wheel Arts Administration and has worked with clients all over New England. She is the director of the RI State Council On the Arts Cultural Facilities Grant & Percent For Art programs. She has also been an independent curator since 2006. Recent exhibitions include On & On: Art Without End for Mark Miller Gallery in NY City and The Prop Show and Color-ism for Wheaton College.
