PRLog - Apr. 4, 2012 - SANIBEL ISLAND, Fla. -- “Fabrication,” an exhibit with artwork by Tania Begg, Vicki Kessler and Donna Kjonaas, will be on display in BIG ARTS Founders Gallery April 5 through 30. An artists reception will take place Friday, April 6, from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

Tania Begg transforms colored beads and wire into unique three-dimensional sculptures. Her work can be seen at the Hirdie Girdie Art Gallery in Sanibel, Sea Grape Art Gallery in Punta Gorda, and at Arts For Act and Koi and Krane art galleries, both in Fort Myers. Her work was chosen as one of Bead&Button magazine’s top 100 international finalists in their 2006 “Bead Dreams” competition. Begg has won awards in many Southwest Florida Art shows.
           
Collaborative, contemporary fiber artists Donna Kjonaas and Vicki Kessler reclaim and repurpose recycled objects to create vessels, quilts and altars. They create art to invite a tactile and interactive experience. Fiber with historic value or purpose, manipulated through processes such as felting, discharge, monoprinting, over-dying, painting, stamping, or stitching, offers a connection to the past, recalling the humble task of hand sewing performed by women over the centuries.

Kessler, an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ, currently resides in Waterloo, Iowa. She is a self-taught fiber artist who has been experimenting with cloth and stitch since childhood. Kessler is a founding member of The Women’s Fiber Art Collective in Madison, Wisconsin. Her work is permanently installed in the Wisconsin Conference of the United Church of Christ in DeForest, Wisconsin; Pilgrim Heights Retreat Center in Green Lake, Wisconsin; First Congregational United Church of Christ and Community of Hope United Church of Christ, both in Madison.
           
Kjonaas, a retired United Methodist minister, currently divides her time between residences in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and Sanibel. Interested in fiber and art from childhood, she has a background in clothing construction and quilting. Her creative impulse, along with her affinity for innovation, leads her to explore unconventional methods and materials in her artistic compositions.
         
Exhibit opens Thursday, April 5, in BIG ARTS Founders Gallery, 900 Dunlop Road, Sanibel. Founders Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.  
           
Fabrication exhibit supported by Founders Gallery Patron Season Sponsor Deborah and John La Gorce.
