Joanne and Mike Zeis have photos included in “Interconnected: A Fiber Show” — a juried exhibition at the Mary Cosgrove Dolphin Gallery at Worcester State University. The show will open on February 2, 2023 and runs through March 18, 2023.
Artists were asked to consider “fiber” broadly, and Mike expects to see a great variety of wall-mounted and free-standing works that, as the organizers put it, “…allow the viewer to experience [fiber] in new ways.”
Mike’s photos show fabric in early and late stages—one shot is of a supply of wool ready to be fed into an industrial loom. The other shows a fragment of torn curtain in an abandoned mansion. Joanne’s photo was taken in guest room at an abandoned spa in Sharon Springs, NY. She says, “Rain and sun hitting this mattress (and traditional sheets) made their own little ecosystem.”
The opening and reception are on Thursday, Feb 2, 2023, from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm. The Dolphin Gallery is in the first floor of WSU’s Ghosh Science and Tech Center at 486 Chandler Street in Worcester. Regular gallery hours are Thursdays and Fridays from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm, Saturdays from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm, or by appointment.
