Sedona AZ (September 18, 2013) – The City of Sedona is proud to announce an extension of time for public viewing of Margaret Anderson’s exhibition at City Hall. This exhibit of large and striking canvases consisting of carefully embroidered silk will be on display until September 27 in the City Council Chambers.
Though Margaret Anderson began art study in 1967 at Ohio State and Bowling Green University, it was in the 1990’s that she began using silk and cotton rather than canvas as a surface for painting. Her ideas and techniques have evolved to her current contemporary wall hangings which utilize acrylic paint on silk and cotton, collage and hand stitching.
Margaret approaches her abstract designs intuitively and with a sense of adventure. As she spontaneously builds multiple layers of collage, her ideas gradually become increasingly defined until the final design immerges.
Margaret has been nationally recognized for award winning contemporary fiber art and has been widely exhibited in juried shows. Her work is also included in private collections throughout the United States and internationally.
To see this beautiful and expansive exhibit at City Hall, please contact Arts & Culture Coordinator Nancy Lattanzi at 928-203-5078 or email ArtsandCulture@SedonaAZ.gov.
