The Yellow Springs Brewery will be hosting the latest works from quilt-maker Pam Geisel from January 9 – February 5 with an artist’s reception on Sunday January 15 from 2-4 pm. The exhibit is part of an ongoing monthly series hosted by the Yellow Springs Brewery entitled, Art + Ale, featuring the latest work from local artists in their taproom.
Geisel is a quilt-maker who works with traditional design blocks in non-traditional ways. For example, instead of piecing shapes together or sewing them, they are fused together using an iron on the back of the fabric which then fuses pieces together. Also, once she discovered the fusing method she found she was able to expand her repertoire by creating unique shapes that are both representational and abstract. Geisel has a background in graphic design, but prefers the intensity and colors that she finds in quilt-making, saying “I paint with fabric.”
The tap room is open Mon-Fri 3-10pm, Sat 1-10pm, Sun 1-8pm at Yellow Springs Brewery, which is located at 305 Walnut St B, Yellow Springs, OH 45387.
