Features

JIYOUNG CHUNG’S JOOMCHI
by Akiko Kotani with Bernard Freyberg
Western forms meet Korean roots in this emerging artist’s work. Chung combines an aesthetic honed at RISD and Cranbrook with a traditional technique for “felting” handmade paper.

MEDITATIONS IN MIXED MEDIA
by Nina Graci, Mary Anker, and Lynn Cornelius Jablonski
Philosophy and psychology, the sacred and mundane flow through the work of Monika Aebischer, Carol Stein, and Patti Roberts-Pizzuto.

THE LANGUAGE OF BOOKS
by Jennifer Brook
Fascinated by the interplay between form and content, an artist discovers a “culture of the book.” Along the way: stamps and maps, explorations in Italy, and dialogue.

MARY ZICAFOOSE: WEAVINGS AND PRINTS
by Suzanne Smith Arney
The Nebraska artist’s tapestries require control at every step; her monoprints are more spontaneous. They share a language of saturated color and bold shapes.

A DREAM COME TRUE: CLOTH FIBER WORKSHOP
by Dawn Cusick
For textile artist Barbara Zaretsky, opening a small business has been a creative process in itself. Her vision is to offer a fiber-arts community resource in western North Carolina.
