Connecting Fiber Art & The Natural World

Connecting Fiber Art & The Natural WorldThursday, April 24, 6:30pm-8pm - Broward North Regional Library Auditorium, 1000 Coconut Creek Pkwy. (Bldg. 62 Room 154), Coconut Creek

Amy Gross uses everyday materials such as yarn, thread, beads and wire to create objects that mimic the natural world but remain wholly artificial. Her fiber and mixed media sculptures, nicknamed biotopes, reflect on the inevitability of change, attempting to counter inevitable vulnerability by stopping time. Her life forms are imitations of life. They, simply, do not die. Gross earned her BFA at The Cooper Union in New York City and worked as a surface designer, creating textiles, toys, and jewelry before before turning full time to fiber art. She lives and works in South Florida. Free and open to the public.
