Judy Kirpich’s exhibit, Emotional Constructs, contains artworks from her Indigo Composition and Memory Loss series. Influenced by her mother and mother-in-law’s Alzheimer’s diagnoses, Kirpich uses the art quilt form with hand-dyed fabrics to explore emotional stability, fragility, and loss.
“The loss of memory is not a sudden event,” Kirpich said. “Memory comes and goes; it fades in and out. There are bright spots where recollections are sharp and focused, and darker areas where people and events are no longer accessible. Confusion and often anger reign.”
Also on display is Quilts=Art=Quilts 2022, a juried show featuring 64 fiber artists from around the world. Galleries are open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays and 1 to 4 p.m. Sundays. Closed Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day.
