Fiber Stories: Artist Talk & Demo

with Kay Healy
Wednesday, October 20; 7–9pm CT

Join for a virtual artist talk with Kay Healy, a Philadelphia-based artist whose interview-based work investigates themes of home, loss, displacement, and resilience through life-sized drawn, painted, and screen-printed fabric installations. Kay Healy’s exhibition, Victory, will be on display in the Outlook Gallery at Minnesota Center for Book Arts from September–October 2021, viewable from the sidewalk along Washington Avenue.

Healy will discuss her influences, the stories behind her projects, and demonstrate the trapunto quilting process she uses in her work.
