DESCRIPTION

The medical arena encompasses the major topics of conversation in a group of seniors. Loss is the primary theme: loss of mobility, agility and strength, loss of loved ones, loss of freedom of movement, loss of mental acuity. In her latest work, Leslie Carabas uses various layers of textile arts - hand-dyed fabrics, texture and drawing achieved through quilting - as well as the patterns she has created with Band-Aids. These materials evoke both the wealth of a decades- long life and the concerns that impact that life on a daily basis. Leslie is a California based abstract artist who has shown throughout the USA, Europe and Ms. Carabas would love to discuss her work with viewers at the artist's reception on March 8th from 3:00-5:00 PM.
