BELFAST – Åarhus Gallery is pleased to have conceptual fiber artist Gabriella D’Italia as the guest artist for through Oct. 24 with an opening reception from 5-8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 1.

Gabriella grew up in Morristown, New Jersey and received her BA in Philosophy and the History of Science and Mathematics at St. Johns College. She presently lives in Newburgh, Maine where she runs her quilting business, The Spring Street Co. Gabriella has taught fiber workshops, has been chairman of the Maine Highlands Guild and is a member of The Maine Crafts Guild. She has been published in the Quilt National ’09 International Biennial exhibition and catalog and is a recipient of a 2010 MAC Good Idea Grant.

“My work investigates material structures under the assumption that they function as cognitive and moral evidence… In this collection of work, Elaborate Hegemonies, I use analogy to pursue a Russian-doll-like epistemology: nested meanings, interpretation-yielding structures, and connectivity.”

Åarhus invites the public to investigate this interesting show of fiber quilts,
photography and drawing and through their cognitive powers, connect to their own interpretations.

The works of Åarhusians, Ingrid Ellison, Annadeene Fowler, Kevin Johnson, Mark Kelly, Richard Mann, Abbie Read, Wesley Reddick and Willy Reddick will also be on display.

Aarhus Gallery is located at 50 Main St. Belfast, and open daily 10am-6pm. For more information and a slideshow of the current exhibit visit, www.aarhusgallery.com or call 338-0001.
