"A Garden Is a Dream Space"; Paperworks/Textiles by Ann Marie Kennedy
Preservation Chapel Hill is proud to host its September 2016 exhibition by mixed media artist Anne Marie Kennedy. A member of Raleigh’s Bonded Llama Studios and an Associate Professor at Wake Technical College, Kennedy classifies herself as an artist and papermaker. In her installations and works on paper, she uses natural materials to create narratives about human connections and experiences . Her work “A Garden is a Dream Space” is inspired, in part, by various compositions and structures of gardens. Her work is also inspired by historic displays and depictions of plants. Her creative process uses the essentials of hand paper making which involves the pouring of a specially prepared pulp into a frame. Thereafter, she arranges the materials for her composition – an assortment of fibers, plants and textiles – in the pulp in a variety of ways, assisted by the viscosity of her pulp material. The result, she says, conveys “an intimacy and immediacy of plant life and relationships”. This is a unique exhibition and is not to be missed.
