Henny Penny by Kristie Duncan

Fri, Jun 2, 2017 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Join us for an artist reception celebrating Kristie Duncan's oversized mixed media portraits! Kristie Duncan lives and creates in Savannah, GA. She makes whimsical artwork from vintage fabrics and found objects. The adorable characters and vibrant scenes stitched in traditional techniques are usually juxtaposed against the laser cut edges of new technology. This creates a wonderful border between our world and her countless patterns. The soft texture of the image allows an escape from everyday harshness and the thought that these fabrics have been used and lived with before evokes a welcoming familiarity. Often a viewer may recount the sweet memory of their grandmother’s sheets, which is the perfect metaphor for the warmth Duncan’s images have, just like an enchanting bedtime story.

FREE CRAFT PROJECT!!  Kids & Parents are invited to create their very own storybook inspired puppets! Then play in our Puppet Theatre, installed especially for the night!
