Sumi Foley

December 1, 2016 - January 15, 2017
Sumi Foley is an artist from Osaka, Japan with more than 27years of making her Abandoned Fabric art. Sumi is creatively using "fabric as pigment” which makes her work appear so painterly. Colors vibrate and bounce when light falls on tiny pieces of silk kimono fabric. "Things are changing every moment. Every day is new with fresh opportunities for us to use our imagination and see our world with NEW EYES.”
Through January 15, 2017


Young Artist Alcove:
Marissa Hernandez

October 27 - December 4, 2016

Young Artist statement:
"I enjoy drawing still-lifes and original characters.  I get my ideas for my characters from my feelings, pictures I’ve seen, old cartoons and music.  Then I combine them together to create my own silly characters.  I use graphite and marker/pen to create my characters because it helps me to create clean edges.  When I work on a still-life, I enjoy trying to copy the textures.  I hope to use my characters and textures to create digital art like animation or video game design."
Through December 4, 2016
