Grace Wever is the featured artist for the month of March at Gallery Two-Ten in Colorado Springs. Don’t miss it. The opening reception is Friday March 26, 2010 from 4-8pm
Grace’s collages incorporate brilliantly-colored layers of silk, hand-dyed cotton, metallic and synthetic fabrics, paper and thread. Iridescence and transparency bring additional light and airiness to her work, while thread painting embellishes the design and adds texture and three-dimensionality. Most of her works are mounted, glazed and framed. Grace’s works are both abstract and representational; the latter include mountain-, desert- and seascapes. Spiritual themes are also depicted in two recent collections. “On Wings of the Wind” is a 13-part series illustrating poetry from King David’s Song of Deliverance from Second Samuel. A second series, “Wild Rivers from Barren Heights,” is based on a verse from Isaiah.
