Charity Harris is an emerging artist who creates fashion sculptures from second-hand and ready-made materials. Harris uses her Southern upbringing as the driving force for the content that fuels her work—race, religion and the human relationship to nature. She combines the use of "humble materials" with her love of natural textures and historic costume to express her unique experiences that explore Southern identity as an African-American woman. In the time spent obtaining a Bachelor of Arts from Georgia State University, her study of fashion expanded to an exploration of textiles to ultimately merging fiber and sculpture. Harris is a Windgate Fellowship finalist and, most recently, an Idea Capital Grant recipient. Her work has been exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art Georgia and has been featured in Burnaway, The AJC, Withal and the textile magazine, Fiber Art Now.
