“Not Quite,” Fiber collage by Nancy Pagani

September 16 – October 14, 2016 Reception Date September 16, 5:00-8:00 pm

 

Using a variety of fiber art techniques and little nuggets of physics knowledge, Ashland artist Nancy Pagani explores planets, moons, and meteors.

 

Local artist Nancy Pagani creates works in fiber on the theme of outer space. Images inspired by planets, moons, quarks, black holes, and meteors are sewn into her quilted fiber works. Nancy has worked with fabric since she was a child, and her passion for creating with fabric includes surface design, quilting, and weaving. Commercial fabrics as well as fabrics that she has dyed and painted are incorporated into the artwork. Her fiber works are playful, lively, and colorful.
