Teen Art Chat with Emma Welty

Wed, Mar 10, 2021

Just for teens ages 13–18, a free virtual studio visit with MAD Artist-in-Residence Emma Welty. Teen Art Chats are organized and hosted on Zoom by MAD’s Artslife teen interns. 


Emma Welty’s research, weaving, and lacemaking practice interrogates her Armenian identity after two generations of assimilation in the United States. Welty's current line of research and writing explores the translations and mistranslations of Armenian lace as it has moved throughout the diaspora, lending itself to further gestures of material translation in the quest for preservation. Welty earned her BFA from Massachusetts College of Art and Design and her MFA in Visual Arts and MA in Art History from Purchase College, SUNY. She has taught at Westchester Community College, Purchase College, and the Textile Arts Center.
