New Show in the Rose Gallery!

October 26 – December 3, 2015

Two local San Diego artists, Charlotte Bird and Polly Jacobs Giacchina, have just installed a new exhibit in the Rose Gallery.  The show titled SHAPES OF NATURE, is a fiber exhibition is a visual display of two incredible bodies of work from Bird and Giacchina.

Nature, in the broadest sense, is equivalent to the natural, physical or material world or universe. It ranges in scale from the subatomic to the cosmic. The study of nature is science. The interpretation of nature is art. SHAPES OF NATURE reflects two artists’ conceptions of the natural world.

Polly Jacobs Giacchina uses basketry and hand weaving techniques to transform natural and industrial materials into organic three-dimensional forms. Charlotte Bird makes wall quilts from her hand dyed and hand printed fabrics representing organic plant and rock forms.

A public reception to meet the artists will be on October 29, 2015, 6-8 pm.
