6494-December 21, 2012
The next Malone University Art-In-A-Case exhibit, located in the foyer of the Everett Cattell Library on the campus at 2600 Cleveland Avenue N.W. in Canton, will feature "Dancing Threads: Quilt and Felt Art" by Connie Bloom. The display, free and open to the public during regular library hours, will run from January 10 through February 28.
The show will feature two genres of works: felted pieces and thread-painted screen prints. Bloom, a quilt artist, combines hand stitching and freehand mechanical machine stitching on original surfaces she makes with hand dyed cottons and hand dyed and painted wool roving. A resident of Akron, Bloom had a long career writing columns and feature stories for Knight Ridder newspapers before turning full time to textile art. She maintains a studio on the third floor of Summit Artspace, 140 E. Market St., in Akron. To see more, or commission a piece, visit her website at: http://conniebloom.com.
