Imagined Garment Imagined Ground

When: Fri., June 24 2016

This summer, the Morgan Conservatory presents new work by Iowa-based artist Julie McLaughlin and Russian born Masha Ryskin, who currently lives and works in Rochester. Imagined Garment Imagined Ground brings together these two artists’ new bodies of work in this dual exhibition. For nearly 20 years, McLaughlin has explored the sculptural possibilities of papermaking. Her wearable paper garments are influenced by Eastern fibers. Ryskin’s work uses the landscape motif and its elements as a metaphor for themes of memory, history and the passage of time, through a variety of media, including painting, drawing, printmaking, fibers and installation. Imagined Garment Imagined Ground opens with a reception from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. today and remains on view through Saturday, Aug. 6. Free. (Usmani)
