Edna J. Patterson-Petty’s “Intimacy: New Fiber Sculptures” Exhibit at David & Jacqueline Charak Gallery, Crafts Alliance

Today and tomorrow on Riehlife, I’m honored to feature one of the fine artists (very fine) I’ve encountered here in St. Louis. Edna J. Patterson-Petty has a show opening this week, so we’ll start there. Tomorrow you’ll get a closer and broader look at a warm woman just filled with wisdom for the village of any century.

“Caught in the Web of Your Love” by Edna Patterson-Petty

Edna J. Patterson-Petty is one amazing artist as you can see in this image “Caught in the Web of Your Love.” She shows us new work in her solo exhibition titled “Intimacy: New Fiber Sculptures” from September 14 through October 28 at the David & Jacqueline Charak Gallery, 6640 Delmar Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63130, 314-725-1177. If you are in the area, attend the free Opening Reception on Friday, Sept 14, 6-8 p.m.

Patterson-Petty describes her exhibit as “… a collection of my sporadic thoughts, ideas, feelings and imagery… The art and designs represent past, present and future thoughts of my life…”
