September Artist-in-Residence Susan Freda: Line into Form

September 2, 2009October 4, 2009

Susan Freda invites visitors to explore the intricate and graceful workings of line. She works by drawing with wire to create two- and three-dimensional environments that refer to the animal, vegetable, and mineral worlds. Visitors are invited to bring bits of nature for inspiration and to weave, crochet, twine, and draw with wire to create "ecosystems" based on the forms we find in nature.

Closing Reception Friday, September 25, 6:00 to 8:30 p.m.

January Artist-in-Residence: Suzanne Husky

Forest
Suzanne Husky will build and install a forest of textile trees made from fabric. Visitors will be invited to mimic nature's ever cycling of material by creating trees themselves or drawing trees from the surrounding park. The multiple fabric patterns, the handmade quality, and the replication of various tree species will bring uniqueness and singularity to each creation, reflecting biodiversity. Husky will also be showing a photography series, Modern Wild Lives, documenting the rudimentary architecture constructed by a marginal population of forest-dwellers who oppose contemporary lifestyles to live closer to nature.
