Earth-Tones: Art Quilts by Penny Sisto, through January 10, 2015
The title of this exhibition, "Earth-Tones", reflects its focus on two recent series by Penny Sisto. We begin with ‘earth,’ a series that stems from Penny’s experiments with dying fabrics with coffee and then working with them to create subtle quilts that express her impressions of aspects of the stages of life. The coffee-stained fabrics imbue these works with a sense of nature and history. The second part, ‘tones,’ is named for another series of artworks that explore the importance of music to cultural traditions across the globe. Image shown is "Fiddle". Fabrics, coffee, heat, gel medium, oil pastels, watercolor, sharpie pen, vintage scraps and rags. 37" x 24.
