The Textile Arts Council presents local fiber artist Consuelo Jimenez Underwood.

Empowered by the voices of her indigenous maternal ancestors, artist Consuelo Jimenez Underwood refocused her early studies from the paintbrush and pigments to needle and thread. Fiber techniques resulted in artwork that she describes as an external validation of ancestral memory and personal quest: “When I weave, sew, or embellish, the old ones seem to express their encouragement and support of my creations.”

Consuelo Jimenez Underwood is retired Professor of Art, and was Head of the Fiber/Textile Program, School of Arts & Design, San Jose State University. The program was developed under her guidance. Her own artwork, which references the Chicano experience, has been exhibited widely and is in the permanent collections of several American museums.
