Night Series 04 — Sarah Wertzberger


Sarah Wertzberger brings completed works, material tests, color studies and works in progress that primarily focuses on her process. She’ll have plenty of samples and tools for people to ponder over and touch.

Alongside her works, Sarah shares her background which led her to this body of textile work today and the career that she’s created for herself through art and design.



Sarah Wertzberger is an artist and designer with a multidisciplinary studio practice primarily based in weaving. Her weaving practices spans hand, industrial and digital weaving.  The work takes on the intersections and thresholds between weaving, painting, printmaking, and technology and shifts perceptual values through the manipulation of material hierarchies and processes. Originating from an experimental and technical space, the work uses color and structure to convey a sense of perceptual disruption and the surreal.  Wertzberger received her MFA at the Rhode Island School of Design and her BFA at the Maryland Institute College of Art.

Night Series 03 —Javier Reyes + rrres

From the Caribbean island of the Dominican Republic to the central valley of Mexico, Javier navigates his trajectory through a curation of photographs, soundscapes and immersive projections.

rrres takes on a nearly symbiotic nature; between contemporary design and traditional techniques,  regional materials and local communities. This project is in the pursuit of research and observation - delineating designs from Latin American everyday life and transmuting them into everyday objects.

Made In



In August 2022, we formed Landdd— a design and creative production studio in Portland, OR. We take on a research-based approach naturally shaped by the confluence of our own studio practices as artists in Oaxaca de Juárez and the Pacific Northwest. We offer private commissions for commercial clients and residential interiors, and produce seasonal collections of objects, textiles and campaigns centered around narratives of our respective cultures.

From working closely with master artisans across Mexico, leading creative teams with commercial agencies, organizing community events, and one-on-one projects with designers, our work is fundamentally rooted in a ︎︎︎collaborative ethos.
