Kelly Frigard's "Tale" at 1305 Gallery


new work by Kelly Frigard

October 25th- November 24th

Opening Final Friday, October 25th from 6- 11pm with a catered reception that evening. Regular Gallery Hours: Tuesday- Saturday 12-4

We openly welcome back Ms. Kelly Frigard and her completely handmade fiber sculpture. This will be her 3rd show at 1305, and her pieces are always perfect this time of year. They have a magical living warmth imbued in every thread that immediately passes to the viewer. To say they are special and full of an intuitive natural sort of care in their production is an understatement.

Frigard's work done on sabbatical from U.C. Clermont showcases a combination of fiber skills that draw from many sources of education, including study abroad in Scandinavia working with raw wool felting and other media. The pieces attached showcase hand dying, felting, embroidery, stitching, stuffing, and the flowers are hand dyed, felted, and stitched. 

Come to 1305 to let Kelly Frigard tell you a "Tale" of the skill of the hand of a fiber artist, through woodland characters that come to life under the needle and before the eye of the viewer.

See you soon,
