Art Gallery Exhibits
On exhibit through October 18th
Dawn Hummer’s new exhibit, *Watermark*, represents artful plays on the organic spirit and mystical voice of water and its influence over her lifetime.
The impetus for her work came from an early immersion in the natural world while growing up in remote coastal Florida. Her observations and direct interactions with rivers and the Gulf of Mexico, her daily activities such as mending cast nets, scaling fish, weathering storms for days without power, and studying water plants under the microscope fostered a deep fascination and desire to be up close and personal with her surroundings -- which continues in her life today.
For this textile artist, free-form manipulation of soft sustainable fibers, hard shiny metals and materials found in nature is done both on and off the loom. The work includes weaving as well as traditional methods of hand-work from other cultures, resulting in a contemporary interpretation of dimensional texture.
