Fall art gallery available

TROY —Brukner Nature Center’s Fall Art Gallery, featuring the quilt work of Lisa Hoblit, a self-taught textile artist who has been transforming fabric into quilts for more than 25 years, is now available for viewing.

Reusing, re-purposing, and recycling fabric remains a key interest for Hoblit. Much as previous generations of practical quilters did, she will salvage fabric from discarded cotton button-down shirts, damaged cotton bed sheets, discontinued upholstery samples, and leftover scraps from previous projects.

The exhibit is free for BNC members and $2.50 per person for nonmembers. Hours are 12:30-4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday or by appointment. The exhibit will run through Sunday, Dec. 20 with pick-up of purchase beginning Monday, Dec. 21. All sales will support the mission of wildlife conservation.
