Art of Ellsworth... Words matter

Textile Artist Chris Leith will be showing her latest textile work “As an artist living in an angry divided country, I felt compelled to instigate some dialog and listening. My “slow stitching” pieces began as quiet prayers, as I thought about all that is happening in our world. My angry words of frustration lived in my journals until they simmered down and found their places in different pieces. This body of work began in January 2018 as a simple gesture marking the celebration of Martin Luther King. One thing led to another........To balance the solitary nature of this work I find myself at Farmer’s Markets and local community events selling pillows to raise money for programs that benefit children.”
