Line Drawings: New Works by Ellen Wieske. A Maine artist, Wieske, draws not with a pencil, but with steel wire. Wieske finds her source of inspiration in cloth, quilting and repetitive work implemented for the creation of textiles. “As a metal smith, being able to touch line and use shadow has enabled me to blend 2 and 3 dimension in my recent work,” quotes Wieske.
Ellen Wieske will be joining the Surface Design Association (SDA) sponsored panel discussion, “Fiber in the Present Tense” at NBAM on Saturday, March 8, 2014 at 1:30 pm as part of the New Bedford “Community Threads” month long fiber art celebration in March.
