About the Artists & Their Works
Carol Law Conklin focuses on batik, an ancient method of painting on fabric with wax and dyes. Her works showcase nature, the seasons, and cycles, along with mythological and primordial themes. Conklin’s work has been shown in many New England and New York galleries.
Charlene Leary has mixed media pieces that layer thread, dye, paint, and metal into patterns and forms that reflect the natural world. She has taught weaving and surface design throughout Northern New York and New England.
Kris Gregson Moss embraces designing with the colors, textures, and patterns found in fabric. Her works tend to express movement, often through dimensional forms, and are elevated with threads, yarns, strings, beads, wires, and found natural items like stones. She currently has work on display at LARAC in Glens Falls, Valley Artisans Market in Cambridge, and in her new studio, Moss on the Hill, in Hebron.
Be sure to check out these captivating works of art starting this Saturday!
