June 26, 2018 – Salinan Shawn Delker will display an exhibit of her art quilts in Salina Public Library’s Gallery 708 June 29 through July 27. A reception for the artist will be from 4-5:30 p.m. July 6, in conjunction with Friday Night Live.
The exhibit, titled “Contemplate,” will include fiber art pieces that incorporate linen, wool and silk, as well as traditional cotton. Delker also uses unwoven silk in a process that turns it into a fabric and dyes her own silk for some of her work.
“Part of my joy comes from the time of creating and contemplating my world,” Delker said. “I find it is time to stop and contemplate this whirlwind world and this door I opened eight years ago. Some cultures contemplate with mandalas, some find natural environments a time to contemplate, you will find both in this collection of my artwork.”
The public is welcome to view the exhibit during library hours — 9 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 1-6 p.m. Sunday. For more information on art exhibited at the library, please contact Lori Berezovsky at firstname.lastname@example.org, (785) 825-4624, ext. 249, or visit library at 301 W. Elm.
