Jackie Abrams has had  40 years of  basket making experience; new, non-traditional materials reflect the artist’s movement toward more intuitive, abstract sculptural forms. According to the artist, “These are forms that are universal, familiar from both nature and from daily use in every culture. The bowl-shaped vessels may hold our important invisible things: dreams, thoughts, and wishes. The suspended forms are echoed by their shadows on the wall.”

Karen Kamenetzky is a textile artist “inspired by the lines and patterns of microscopic/cellular imagery.” Utilizing hand-dyed silk, wool and other fabrics, she creates a personal narrative of textured biomorphic shapes of incredible richness and hue that zooms in on this fundamental nature of things and brings it into vision.

Represented artists of Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts, Jackie Abrams and Karen Kamenetsky exhibited at Mitchell Giddings Fine Arts from August 18 - September 18 2016. This video exhibits the artist talk with both artists on Saturday, September 17, 2016.
