Jurors for Greenwich Art Society juried shows give out prizes, and Angela has received a second one this year. Her landscape titled "Blue House" received the Peter Pellerzi Fiber Art Award at the Society's members' juried exhibition, "Peripheral Vision." Angela's seascape, "Inlet at Sunset I," received similar recognition at the Society's 100th Anniversary Open Juried Show in May.
"Peripheral Vision" opened Thurs., June 29, at the Flinn Gallery at Greenwich Library and continues through Wed., July 19. Juror Tamar Margalit, Assistant Curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture at The Museum of Modern Art, NY, selected "Blue House" and 67 other works from nearly 170 painting, photography, sculpture, mixed media and fiber art submissions.
I find great joy and fulfillment in designing and creating art out of fabric. Not infrequently, art has "happened" when two or more otherwise unacquainted fabric pieces - creased and frayed or flat and squared up - accidentally bumped into each other and became friends. Time in the studio is a feast of experimentation and discovery, as the fabrics take me on adventures in depth, dimension, metaphor and whimsy.
