DESCRIPTION
We are hosting a slide presentation with ceramic sculptor, Pattie Chalmers and textiles artist Maggy Hiltner, on Friday, May 18th from 5pm - 6pm in the Kids Classroom at Lillstreet Art Center, followed by a reception for our current exhibition "...And Then..."  featuring the work of Pattie Chalmers, Maggy Hiltner and Gerit Grimm.
“And then…,” showcases the work of Pattie Chalmers, Gerit Grimm and Maggy Rozycki Hiltner, three artists using traditional craft mediums to tell whimsical, fantastical and bitingly ironic narratives. Through figurative ceramics and textiles, Chalmers, Grimm, and Hiltner reinterpret childhood memory and 20th century American cultural history to create modern fairy tales.
