Fine Line Designs Gallery continues its summer season with a second gallery exhibit featuring the works of Martha Fieber, Jeff Hargreaves, and Janice Rangel. The public is invited to an artist reception on June 8, 4 – 7 pm.
Textile artist Fieber is self-taught in embroidery and weaving, and has worked with fiber since she was old enough to hold a needle. Each one of Fieber’s highly detailed pieces includes layers and layers of hand-stitching to create shading and depth. She uses a variety of threads, fibers, and colors, along with only four different types of stitches to attain the perspective seen in her work.
Fieber will demonstrate her techniques at the gallery on June 9, 11 am – 2 pm.
Oil painter Rangel explains her art is transition, as it reflects her love of nature and her attempt to “interpret the awe it inspires in me.” “I move back and forth between abstraction and content, and I learn from each approach,” adds Rangel.
Hargreaves prefers to connect with his viewers through representational painting. “My paintings are of tangible things, represented as eloquently as I can,” he says. “If I can reach some common ground with my audience, I think that’s the best way to connect.”
Fine Line’s Exhibit II will run through July 8. For more information visit finelinedesignsgallery.com.
