This exhibit features two different approaches to texture by artists new to the Workhouse Art Center. Kate Fitzpatrick presents abstracted images of current and historical geographies that emerge along rivers. Her multi-layered mixed media paintings use existing maps as a collage material to address themes of place and identity – complex textures emerge though layers of wood, paper and paint. Kate received her BFA from Clarion University and her MA from University of New Mexico. An avid adventurer, Kate recently spent four months in India exploring art education topics as part of her Fulbright scholarship.

Tina Kannapel presents needle felted wool and bamboo sculptures that represent a walk in the woods by an unwary traveler. Featured are “mystical forest folk” - tree spirits, elves, talking trees, barn owls and green men – that “assist” the traveler on his journey. There are also sock monkeys (just for fun). Tina studied art at the Baum Art School in Allentown, PA, and the Corcoran School of Art, and received private instruction by notable painters, sculptors, and fiber artists in PA, VA, and NC.
