Exhibit reception for fabric artist Joanna Sunshine is Thursday, May 3 in Christiansburg
The Montgomery Museum and Lewis Miller Regional Art Center is proud to present an exhibition by fabric artist Joanna Sunshine during the months of May and June. The show will open Thursday, May 3 with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m., which is open to the public.
“More than 50 years ago I acquired my first loom, or rather pieces of a loom discovered in a junk yard. Since then there have been floor looms, table looms, back strap looms, inkle looms, barn looms, tapestry looms and even a two-story tall frame loom,” writes Sunshine. “Bypassing the craft of traditional weaving, I am passionate about experimentation and discovery. I not only use fiber in my art but also handmade papers, objects from nature, and found objects. I seek to transform unlikely materials into art.”
Her current pieces of art can be viewed online at www.molokaiartgallery.com.
The museum is located at 300 S. Pepper St., Christiansburg. For more information, call 382-5644.
