art is life...live without textiles...if you can

Tonight at Brooks' Small Town Gallery, just north of Shepherdsville, Dennis Shaffner will share a photographic survey of textile artist Alma Lesch's innovative Fabric Portraits.

From the biblical based themes of the 1960s to the "American Gothic" fabric portraits which grew from the stitch laden tapestries on feed sacks Shepherdsville's pioneer of American fiber art has touched the American landscape of fabric. "Kentucky Landscape" once a corporate commission for the former Meidenger Tower, Louisville now is archived in the Owensboro Museum of Art.
