BAGA hosting fiber art exhibit
The fiber arts exhibit titled “Land, Sky, Water” by Vicki Kessler and Donna Kjonaas and “From Tree to Basket” by Eileen McEnroe will be on display through July 25 at the Bismarck Art & Galleries Association, 422 E. Front Ave., Bismarck.
Kessler, an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ, lives in Fargo. She is a self-taught fiber artist who has been experimenting with cloth and stitching since childhood.
Kjonaas, a retired United Methodist minister, divides her time between residences in Fargo and Sanibel, Fla. Interested in fiber and beauty from childhood, she has a background in clothing construction and quilting.
McEnroe, of Bismarck, was introduced to pine needle basketry nine years ago through a book from the public library.
Member artists Judy Carlson and Zoe Wergeland have artwork on display in the small gallery. Carlson is exhibiting her pottery and Wergeland has oil and acrylic paintings on display.
Both artists live in Bismarck.
You have free articles remaining.
The opening reception is from 5-7 p.m. July 11 at BAGA. The reception is free and open to the public.
