Jessie Wilber Gallery

February 8 – April 26, 2019

Tuesday – Friday, 10am – 5pm

Maggy Rozycki Hiltner searches antique shops, thrift stores and yard sales for embroidered linens, collecting the brightly colored flowers, foliage, and animals that appear in her work. What she cannot find she hand-stitches and mixes in with the collected embroidery. She uses the familiarity of the stitch along with seemingly lighthearted and cheerful designs to convey more serious subject matter. She often uses humor and Dick and Jane-style characters to tell her stories, and very rarely is everything quite what it seems.

Please join us for an opening reception to meet the artists and enjoy refreshments on Friday, February 8 from 5 – 8 PM.

This exhibit is our Spring 2019 Schools in the Gallery feature. Tours are available for all ages starting February 11 – April 26, 2019.
