Shea Wilkinson: Parallel Worlds opens in Omaha at Gallery 72

Friday, August 31, 2018

KHN Alumni Shea Wilkinson's work will be featured in a solo show at Gallery 72 in Omaha, Nebraska.  Shea Wilkinson: Parallel Worlds opens Friday, September 14 and will be on display through Saturday, October 6, 2018. The Opening Reception for this exciting show is Friday, September 14, 2018 5:00 to 9:00 PM with a Gallery Talk on Wednesday, September 19, 2018 7:00 PM.

Here’s what Gallery 72 has to say about Shea Wilkinson’s elaborate and intricate fiber and sculptural work (from the Gallery 72 website):

“Wilkinson's works are influenced by science fiction and the natural world, and explore her curiosity in the mysteries that lie beyond our senses. Man is surrounded by spaces which can not be seen or felt, locked in a cube, traveling within the universe. This series is a reflection of that journey.

Wilkinson's works are created using the inherently three dimensional medium of quilting, using stitch to amplify the textures of space.”

Janet L. Farber of The Reader describing Wilkinson’s work:

" is simply rewarding to trace the intricacy of Wilkinson’s threadwork, her approach to color, pattern and texture as vehicles for narrative subtext. Her medium of, essentially, drawing in thread segments is well suited to these illustrative, diagrammatic renderings."
