Opening Final Friday, February 26th is Winged, new work by local artist Kelly Frigard.
The exhibition opens with a catered reception hosted by 1305 Gallery and the Artist on February 26th from 6-11 pm. The show runs through March 21st, with gallery hours Tuesday- Saturday: 11-3, or by appointment.
Winged, Kelly Frigard's second exhibition of new work at 1305 Gallery features pieces showcasing her masterful use of fiber and ceramic media to create delicate and whimsical forms. In her February 2006 exhibition, Wish, Frigard combined hand dyed and felted wool with hand embroidery to create wall-mounted scenes and figures that were both melancholy and warm. The resulting exhibit proved ideal for a winter show.
Now in February of this year, Frigard continues to work in traditional methods of hand felting and hand embroidery, also employing her training in ceramic sculpture and prepared animal skins and furs. These media mix to create soft, fragile, idyllic forms that are at once pulled from nature and taught between our world and that of the natural and unstained. It is a delight to once again showcase her talent in the gallery, bringing a little corner of warmth to our frozen city.
Please join us on Final Friday for the opening of Kelly Frigard's exhibition Winged, and that of 1305 Gallery's 2010 exhibition year.
Remember: There's always plenty of Good Food, Good Friends, and Great Art when you come to Final Fridays at 1305!
