Liptack fabric art to be shown
Gunn Memorial Library in Washington will open an exhibit, “Fabric Meditations (on) Our Island Home,” featuring fiber works by Angela Suter Liptack, Saturday through Oct. 28.
An artist’s talk and reception will take place Oct. 14 from noon to 2 p.m. at the Wykeham Road library.
The artist’s passion for the artistry of traditional, functional quilts has led to experiments using fabric to create art that depicts scenes, concepts and moods.
“Fabrics of different design, tone, texture, weave, weight and finish can be combined in infinite ways,” Liptack said. “Not infrequently, art ‘happens’ when two or more otherwise unacquainted fabric pieces — creased and frayed or flat and squared up — accidentally bump into each other, become friends and spark something between themselves and in me.”
She uses high-quality textiles, mounted on Ph-neutral materials and presented behind Tru-Vue Conservation Clear glass. Many of her pieces feature custom-made, reclaimed wood frames.
Liptack’s award-winning fiber art has hung in juried shows throughout Connecticut and New York.
She is a member of the Greenwich Art Society, the Ridgefield Guild of Artists and is an exhibiting member of the Rowayton Arts Center in Norwalk. She lives in Ridgefield.
The Wykeham Road library is open Mondays and Fridays from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
