Our Current Exhibition


February 23 – March 30, 2018
LAVISH!: New Work by Zoé Strecker

The Lavish! installation sculpture by Zoé Strecker is a long-term project that features community-embroidered images of natural communities and organisms in the forests on Pine Mountain in the southeastern Kentucky. Stitched by volunteer embroiderers from across the country, the printed silk organza panels, hang within a circular, bent wood structure (22’ diameter by 10’ 4” high). This exhibition engages sight, sound, and smell and includes an active embroidery studio as well as a side exhibition titled “Inspired by Wild Places,” featuring the work of selected members of the Pine Mountain Collective: Rebecca Allan, Vallorie Henderson, Erika Strecker and Brian and Sara Turner.
