DoN asked Kathryn Pannepackerr about the title of her fiber arts show at the William Way LGBT Community Centerat 1315 Spruce Street called Shagging, what’s it mean? ”Get your jiggy on! The title I started with was much too ling, it was called Shag Tagging Graffiti Art for All, it was just too wordy, so I kind of just broke it down to the essence, Shagging. So, you know, working with fibers, a lot of texture. real simple knotting, kind of like shag rugs, my whimsical, funny, playful side, the sexy side of shagging.” So it is a double entendre like rolling around on the rug? ”Well, it’s good to know that under it is chain link fence.” Another metaphor? ”In a way, yeah. A lot of this work came from doing a lot of guerilla work outside on chain link fences around abandoned lots around the city. Just wanting to bring art outside for everybody, so that it’s really accessible for anyone.”
