Ambiguous loss is something Battle Lake artist Krisi Kuder began experiencing several years ago. Despite its challenges, she's drawn to this concept of "not knowing," and it inspires the art she creates every day.
Artwork by a few of the club's members is on exhibit now at the Perham Area Library. Embroidery, pastels and paintings by Kris Domier, Catherine Erickson, Clara Helvig and Lorene Schumacher will be hanging in the gallery at the library through the end of December.
The program offers students the opportunity for study with a professional in their chosen field (music, visual arts, creative writing, media arts, architecture, theater, costume design, dance, etc.) during the summer months.
A closing reception featuring fiber arts demonstrations and a chance to meet the artist is planned for Saturday, Nov. 6 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The reception is open to all and free to attend, with light refreshments available.
Kristen Anderson is a fiber artist, creating wool felt tapestries and rugs using a traditional wet felting technique. The scraps from her work allow for additional experiments with wool, which become textural hangings and sculptural objects. Her hand work focuses on connection to both the natural world and the inner self.
