The Carnegie Center for Art & History is pleased to present Penny Sisto at 80, an exhibition of recent works by the venerated New Albany fiber artist. This will be the 80-year-old Sisto’s eighth exhibition at CCAH. The works seen here reveal a return of the artist’s focus to well-loved subjects from her decades-long career as an artist and midwife: powerful women, mothers with children, Goddesses and other spiritual figures—all assembled from scraps of fabric, and adorned with her signature diamond-like sewn details. The opening reception will include music by the Jamey Aebersold Jazz Quartet and complimentary refreshments.
In order to reduce crowd size in our galleries during the Covid-19 health crisis, we are requiring attendees to register in advance and select a time slot to attend the opening. Masks are strongly encouraged at the request of the artist.
Please register for one of the time slots below. The 5-6 p.m. time slot is reserved for members of the Carnegie Center for Art & History, and includes a guided tour of the exhibit with the artist.
