ART EXHIBIT IN WEST STOCKBRIDGE

Imagining Heaven & Earth

Anne Ferril and Pat Frik

Thursdays through Sundays from 11am to 4pm (closed Thursday July 4)

Friday July 5 - Sunday July 14

Opening Reception - Saturday July 6 2 - 4pm

Anne Ferril looks to the sky for inspiration and made her first moon jar after moving to the Berkshires. The shadows and patterns of trees, swaying and dancing in the moonlight, became the guiding light for her work in clay. They also heightened her appreciation of the moon’s beauty and its significance to life here on earth, especially before the invention of electricity. The work in this show reflects her delight in the magic of the moon – through a complex firing process that includes smoke, wood fire, soda fire, gas reduction, and finally, electric oxidation, each process leaving its distinct mark.

Pat Frik began her path to Fiber Art after many years as a hand weaver, as evidenced by the emphasis on process and surface texture in her current work. In these small scale works she brings the natural world to life using hand stitching to enhance and often reinterpret imagery, sometimes in whimsical ways. Sometimes she uses multicolored threads and stitching techniques combined with photo transfers on layers of fabric. In other pieces she dyes natural cotton fabric to form a base for imaginary landscapes using the sewing needle to stitch a path along contours connecting mountains to coastlines.
