Elemental Fiber

When: Mondays-Sundays. Continues through Aug. 18

California fiber artist Kathy Nida creates fabric narratives by translating her dreams into artworks. Through her colorful quilts such as Earth Daughter, You Pollute Me, and All Stacked Up in My Head, Nida explores public issues such as women’s rights, politics, climate change, gun control, and other social topics through art. Many of these topics can be found in the six exhibiting artworks in this exhibition - Elemental Fiber. The artist mines her subconscious and conscious — good and bad memories— and reconciles them into quilts using fabric, beads, embroidery, paint, and pen.
