Theda Sandiford is an award-winning, self-taught fiber and installation artist based in Jersey City, NJ.  Using racial trauma as a starting point, Sandiford juxtaposes various fibers with a variety of found materials using free-form weaving, coiling, knotting, crochet, and jewelry-making techniques. Meticulously collected materials and community donations transformed by their collective memory become “social fabric,” weaving together contemporary issues and personal narratives. Community artmaking is key to Sandiford’s process. She curates multidisciplinary experiences, utilizing people, sound, and artmaking to create a safe space to explore themes such as equity, inclusion, sustainability, and personal well-being. Sandiford has shown extensively nationwide, including at Expo Chicago, Untitled Art Fair, SPRING/BREAK ART SHOW, Governor’s Island, New Jersey Arts Annual, and American Contemporary Craft: National Juried Exhibition. She has received Excellence in Fibers VI from Fiber Art Now, the 2020 Jersey City Arts Visual Artist Award, the 2021 Fellowship in Craft from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, and the 2022 Jersey City Arts Council Individual Artist Fellowship.
