Spaces in Between: Contemporary Textiles

Show: September 10 – October 19

Gallery talk: Thursday, October 3


Kate's unique vision produces spectacular results.  Fabric is her paint, and her mastery of the medium with the use of hand dyed fabric gives her work a richness and depth of color that makes her strong and distinctive graphic compositions sing.

 

I find that the juxtaposition of contemporary, figurative subjects

paired with a very traditional form of quilting -- after all, there is

nothing more basic than sewing squares of commercially

available material together and then quilting them-- leads to

interesting and beautiful images.
