      EVENT DETAILS
      Kaleidoscope: Fiber Embroidery by Liz Whitney Quisgard

      The fiber embroideries of Liz Whitney Quisgard have a three-dimensional quality captured on a two-dimensional surface by careful placement of hundreds of tiny stitches onto a buckram base. In her own words, “My goal is to surprise and engage the mind by seducing the eye.” Using a vibrant collage of colors, she achieves this goal with her vivid works of art. A painter for 60 years, Quisgard started embroidery just over a decade ago. Her work is at times very structured and symmetrical, at other times very abstract and free-form. She studied both art and architecture at the Maryland Institute, College of Art. Her work captures both disciplines and the pieces display a mastery of illusion, creating depth by use of light and shadow. Her work is reminiscent of Byzantine and Islamic mosaics, all achieved with small stitches creating an effect rather like Seurat’s pointillism.
