Feb 23 – March 30, 2018
(Closed the week of March 12 for Spring Break)
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 southeastern Kentucky. The printed silk organza panels, stitched by volunteers, hang within a circular, bent wood structure (22’ diameter by 10’ 4” high). This exhibition includes an active embroidery studio and select works by other artists directly inspired by Pine Mountain.
