“Enchanted Elements” is on view November 16, 2022 through January 28, 2023. An eclectic and beautiful mix of fiber textiles and sculpture. The work includes: artists' books, woven wall hangings, masks, felted work, monoprints, art wearables, rugs, tapestry, basketry, indigo-dyed scarves, and collaged work. Much of the work contains "mystical" elements—defined as containing protective or magical properties—hence, the term "enchanted." Beautiful and truly unique art objects to give or to receive for the holidays. Come see!

Artists exhibiting work include Elizabeth Berkana, Barbara Burns, Kimberly Crichton, Deborah Freedman, Kathleen Goddu, Kimberley Harding, Sarah Haskell, Berri Kramer, Richard Lee, Stephanie Levy, Susan Merrill, Charlotte Moore, Jennifer Lee Morrow, Meredith Mustard, Renuka O’Connell, Susan Perrine, Linda Perry, Kirsti Sandoy, Lori Schafer, Sarah Ann Smith, Jill Snyder Wallace, Judith Tollefson, Jill Vendituoli, Carolyn Wolle.

(For a brief time, before the actual opening, this show was formerly called "Greatest Hits." It was renamed to better reflect the content.)

Elizabeth Busch

Reception: Sunday, July 22, 2-5 p.m. 
Gallery Hours: Wednesday-Friday, 11-4; Saturday, from 11-2

Writes Elizabeth Busch: "Having been an artist all my life and an 'art quilter' since 1983, I've come to realize that my art work is all about process. Whether I am airbrushing, spreading Textile Paint on canvas taped to my table top, hand quilting or weaving painted acetate strips through plastic netting for one of my large kinetic sculptures, I am responding to that voice within that tells me today it's time to make art.
