Exhibit Opening: Skunk Cabbage Bog
October 15, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The Catskill Art Society will host a free opening reception for “Skunk Cabbage Bog,” an exhibition of artwork by Leslie Pelino, in the Elevator Gallery on Saturday, October 15 from 4-6pm. The exhibition will be on display October 15 – November 20.
“Skunk Cabbage Bog” is a fiber art assemblage installation from reclaimed clothing and household and garden materials, brilliantly conceived by artist Leslie Pelino as a transformation of place. She creates a magical journey into an alternate fantasy world of a deep woodland skunk cabbage (Symplocarpus foetidus) bog, a reinterpretation of her favorite real-life Hudson Valley marshland destination.
Created with large, abstractly representational LED lit sculptures, vinyl wall decals of actual plants, and a digital photo slideshow of skunk cabbages and other marshland foliage taken over the course of a year, including recordings of the location’s nature sounds.
