Lynnwood Library Art Gallery features Fiber Art Embroidery by Maura Donegan

108 Blocks

Fiber Art Embroidery by Irish artist Maura Donegan is featured at the Lynnwood Library Gallery through Sept. 4.

Working with silk organza, tulle, rayon & metallic thread, Donegan creates dramatic monochromatic lace cloth grids where she embroiders words, whose sounds & meanings evoke memories, both happy & sad.

Reminiscent of crosswords, answers emerge from hidden clues. Donegan has degrees in design, embroidery, quilting & fiber art having studied in Ireland, England & most recently the University of Washington. Like her mother, grandmother, great grandmother & the women before them who stitched for pleasure & comfort, she carries on that tradition in her works with patience, reflection & repetition.

A reception for Donegan will be from 6-8 p.m. on Aug.19.

The Lynnwood Library is located at 19200 44th Ave. W. in Lynnwood.
