Join us for a talk with exhibiting artist Angela Maroun during First Friday. Angela will be talking about her work in Hawaiian Petroglyphs in Felt and Stitch by Angela Maroun at the Art center. Angela Maroun has been a textile artist since 2006. She utilizes shibori dyeing techniques and screen printing with dye and textile paints to create layered patterning on cloth. Texture is added to the cloth with stitching and needle felting. This creates complex one of a kind backgrounds for her intensive hand embroidered and needle felted imagery. Hawaiian Petroglyphs in Felt and Stitch includes 12 works that are inspired by Petroglyphs located on Hawaii's Big Island.
