Artist of the Month

Libbie SofferPicture1

sew on and sew forth; a visual essay on the process of stitching a life

Award-winning area artist, Libbie Soffer will display her fiber artwork exhibit inspired by a life long affair with cloth and sewing. Libbie learned to sew as a child and considers her sewing machine an integral tool in her artmaking. Sculptures, wall hangings, and mixed media dominate the exhibit using cloth's gestural potential with historic and biographic connection. She creates new surfaces with paper and cloth for building tales of non-figurative storytelling.

Libbie and her colleague Thora Jacobson will lead a discussion/Q&A during the opening reception at 2:00 p.m. on February 24. (Event runs from 1:00-4:00 p.m.)

On February 26, Libby will host a Mixed Media Collage Workshop, 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Cost: $40; 10-Person Limit; All materials provided; Bring a bagged lunch. To register for this hands-on workshop, contact Mary Kane (). Seven spaces remain.

Fireside Room Hours: 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Mon-Fri;  9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. Sunday
