Art Exhibit “Family” at the Kramer Gallery
June 1, 2018 @ 8:00 am - June 30, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
Family a mixed media exhibit by Alice Hobbs Parsons will be on view for the month of June in the Kramer Gallery of the Belfast Free Library, 106 High Street. The gallery is located on the ground floor of the library and is open during library hours.
In this exhibit Parsons honors her family by focusing on their lives in rural Kentucky from the mid-nineteenth through the twentieth century and by acknowledging their influence on her art. She says, “There were no boys in our family and I liked helping my grandfather and stepfather with repairs and outdoor chores, thus my admiration for tools and metal. My great grandmother, grandmother and mother wove carpets, quilted, sewed, crocheted, and embroidered; as a result, so do I. All of them taught me to be creative by using items for unintended purposes. For this show I have combined photographs, stories, broken furniture, tools, metal, and fiber, sometimes instilling seemingly mundane items with beauty.”
