CURRENT AND UPCOMING EXHIBITIONS

ARLENE MORRIS
"STITCHED"

March 3 - April 16, 2017
RECEPTION: March 3rd fro 7-9PM

The gallery has been completely remodeled and we are very pleased to re-open with long-time Figureworks artist, Arlene Morris. Arlene was one of the first artists to show at Figureworks in 2000, making this inagural exhibiton even more exciting.

Arlene says of this new series of work on handmade paper:
Sometimes I feel I’m all over the place when it comes to art. One minute I am engrossed in a painting, but then needing to walk away from it.  At this moment nothing is more beautiful to me than handmade paper. It started with a written piece; a stream of consciousness that went on for four typed pages about now and then, the time in between, growing up, before we have a sense of who we are and where we are going… a child looking forward; a woman looking backward.  Out of the writing came a series of handmade paper figures, each painted, pieced, stitched and molded with embroidered words from the story.
