Kara Patrowicz "Homebound" Fiber Show on view at Wayside Gallery at Fruitlands Museum

April 28-August 21

“Homebound” captures the familiar interplay of daily activities, family life, technology and the COVID-19 pandemic. Kara Patrowicz blends fiber and painting techniques in depictions of domestic subjects. In our “homebound” moment, these works embody her search for the sublime and sacred in the quiet rituals and mundane messes of parenthood.

Kara uses wet and dry felting, embroidery, and watercolors to achieve a mixed media effect, often using antique fabrics as a background.
