An exhibition of felt fiber art

July - August 2018 | Dabney Kirchman

8 AM - 4 PM (M - F) | Frances Plecker Education Center

Artist Talk | July 11 | 12 - 1 PM

“The process of felt making is both labor intensive and meditative. Sometimes the work specifically references night, or particular times of day or seasons, when the light startles us into seeing more attentively. Some pieces reference water—color through refracted light—or reflections, both literally and in terms of thoughtful ponderings. My interest is in the experience of darkness, the depth of color when it becomes so oversaturated light cannot escape back to our eyes. Felt, with its layered structure, is an exquisite medium for that exploration. A completed felt wall piece changes not just the visual environment but also the acoustics and temperature of a space."
