MARCH EXHIBITS
Lobby 
Artist:  XUEHUA FAN
For many generations Fan’s family has created Silk Embroidery, a traditional art form in Suzhou, Jiangsu Province, China.  As a young child, Fan learned the craft from her mother and other family members.  Su embroidery is known for its painting-like appearance—some people have called it “Silk Painting.”   Each work is created by hand sewing colored silk threads onto a silk backing to create a picture.  Depending on the subject, sometimes threads are split in half, quarters, or even eights to create a fine texture to the picture.  Many pictures take weeks or months to create.

Wakelin Room
Twosomes - Photographer Mark Chester
Twosomes is a compilation of “twosomes and then some.”   This is a collection of two pictures of people, places and things that have resonated with the photographer in an emotional, intellectual or whimsical way.

 Artist's Reception on  March 14, 1-5 pm in the Wakelin Room
