The following description was submitted by the event organizer.

Taking Up Space, or T.U.S. is a Grassroots Community Global Art Exhibition for Artists of Genders Underrepresented in the Art World. The Taking Up Space Exhibit features the solo work of artist Madeleine Camille Meyer. Madeleine is drawn to the contrast of soft fibers connected to ceramic and utilizes them to tell these stories. Many have experienced both the sharp, firm moments of life and the soft, warm ones, and Madeleine's work presents the culmination of those moments, reminding viewers that moments are not the sum but rather a small fraction coming together to make something greater. Her work prompts us to settle into the stories of ourselves and our communities, to actively partake in those communities and rest in them.
