Mary Lou Alexander: A Retrospective

    Growth 12, a work by fiber artist Mary Lou AlexanderThis exhibition features the work of Mary Lou Alexander, a fiber artist from Hubbard, Ohio, who left her first career as a professor of biological sciences at Kent State University to become a full-time fiber artist.

    Like a scientist, Alexander experiments with different surface design techniques, such as screenprinting, low-water immersion and stenciling. She has learned shibori-dyeing processes and has experimented with shaping silk fabrics into three dimensional pieces.

    Much of her work reflects what she taught, with titles such as "Growth Series," "Big Bang" and "Flotsam" gracing her projects. Her work is colorful, new and exciting and has to be seen in person to be appreciated.  

    This exhibition closes April 30, 2023.
