The final Door County Wearable Art Show of 2016 will be held Oct. 1, 9 am to 5 pm, and Oct. 2, 10 am to 4 pm, at the Sister Bay Village Hall. The show has contemporary, artist-made women’s clothing, accessories and jewelry in a wide range of styles, sizes and prices.
The Wearable Art Show is excited to welcome back award-winning fiber artist Pat Kroth Oct. 1 & 2. Originally a Chicago native, Kroth resides in Verona, Wis., where she creates fragment collage quilts comprised of tiny bits of fiber, trapped threads and found objects. These additions sometimes include anything from candy wrappers, safety pins, and computer paper to toys and fortune cookie fortunes. In other abstract works the surface texture vibrates with high contrast, saturated, intense color. With hand-painting, dyeing, and other surface design techniques she transforms cloth, and paints with thread. Kroth’s silk scarves are a favorite at the show; they’re hand-dyed and sun-printed with images from nature.
Kroth’s work is currently touring with the National Quilt Museum’s 25th anniversary show, Gala of the Unexpected. Her work was also included in the Wisconsin Biennal at the Museum of Wisconsin Art 2016.
The wearable art show, hosted by Angela Lensch Gallery, is free and open to the public. For more information, call 920.868.5088 or visit doorcountywearableartshow.com.
