This art quilt by Martha Wolfe, entitled ‘Asian Lily,’ is part of the Kershner Gallery’s ‘Double Take’ exhibit.
The Bruce S. Kershner Gallery at the Fairfield Public Library will have a reception for “Double Take”, a photo and fiber group show, on Saturday, Jan. 11, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. The show features the work of members of Sisters in Cloth and will run from Jan. 5 to Feb. 23.
Sisters in Cloth is a group of fiber artists from the Connecticut Shoreline. The collaboration was inspired by Rosemary DeLucco Alpert’s photography. Each fiber artist selected one of her images to interpret in fiber. They were attracted to either the overall image, the composition, the color or the texture. Both the photographs and the resulting art interpretations are on display.
The group started in 2000 in Guilford and continues to meet weekly at one another’s homes. The membership is limited to 12, with members coming from towns that run from West Haven to Clinton. The artists have exhibited together as an art quilt group since 2004 in a variety of venues, including Haskins Labs at Yale University, Legislative Office Building in Hartford, Department of Transportation in Newington, Garde Theater in New London, Willoughby Wallace Library in Stony Creek and Connecticut Hospice in Branford.
