Elizabeth Keithline

About

Elizabeth Keithline’s work focuses on human self-extension in many forms. A weaver since the age of 14, in 1996 she invented a sculpture technique called “Lost Box.” She weaves wire around objects, then burns them out or peels them off, creating a wire memory.

Wheel Arts Administration

Keithline was an independent curator and exhibition designer from 2004–2020 under the name Wheel Arts Administration. She is currently the Exhibitions Director for the Woodstock Artists Association and Museum and is not taking on new clients.
