The Phipps Center for the Arts collaborates with Woodland Hill, the newest senior living community in Hudson, to present rotating quarterly exhibitions featuring original work by regional artists. These exhibits are presented in two beautiful light-filled corridors with built-in niches designed to showcase the art.
Work by Gloria Adrian and Barbara Riegel Bend is on view through May 7.
“As a painter, my art is a synthesis of my personal feelings, the subject or colors that inspire me and my materials and techniques…Typically, I start paintings with a color idea and evolve toward compositions in which color is the primary subject. Serenity and simplicity are my primary goals.”
– Gloria Adrian (Hudson)
“As a fiber artist I am drawn to the rich heritage of cloth and the story it tells through its content, color, design, and cultural history. I work with fabrics that have their own integrity and voice… I explore the interplay of cross cultural fabrics stitched side by side with a reconfiguration of contemporary ‘throw
away items’ that share the pattern, color or texture.”
– Barbara Riegel Bend (Roberts, Wis.)
