I was pleased to have the opportunity to meet with family members on Easter weekend and see my “Improvisational Fabric Wall Hanging” on display in the space it was designed for. The work commemorates the 75th anniversary of the founding of St. Thomas Aquinas Church and Catholic Student Center in Ames. Its size (8′ x 12′) reflects the scale of the church wall, and allows room to tell the Easter story in a series of scenes created from fabric shapes.
The wall hanging will be on display at St. Thomas Aquinas Church until Pentecost, June 5. The church’s e-bulletin from May 7, 2022 has some of my reflections about the artwork and its meaning, along with a larger, head-on photograph:
I plan to focus on the individual scenes in an upcoming post!
