OLEAN, NY — "Interwoven," an exhibition featuring work by Kari Roslund, will be on display at Jamestown Community College's Center Gallery in the coming weeks.
The art, made of fibers that are woven together to create images of nature, will open on Friday.
Roslund grew up in Woolrich, Pennsylvania, and studied studio art at Lycoming College in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.
After moving to rural Pennsylvania and starting a small farm with her husband, Roslund became interested in the process of wool and textile production.
"I enjoy the process of taking fibers from their raw state and reworking them into a palette of lustrous silks and woolen vibrant tones," Rosland said. "When I construct, I layer my hand-worked fleeces onto reclaimed textiles. This process creats a type of contemporary tapesty, bringing a three-dimensional element to my work."
The opening of "Interwoven" will be from 6 to 8 p.m. on the second floor of the College Center on JCC's Cattaraugus county campus. The event is free and open to the public.
Tr-County Arts Council worked in collaboration with JCC to produce this exhibition series.
The Center's art gallery is open Mondays through Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., and on Fridays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
