6pm to 9pm
An embroidery exhibition by New Hampshire based artist Courtney Sanborn.
"My work presents private moments, conversations, and events that punctuate the rhythm of my daily existence. The settings and characters are metaphorical in nature and exist in a space born from direct observation and memory. Play is balanced by the presence of a darker more serious reality. It is from this duality that these narratives unfold.
Bright color, bold composition, and pattern are the founders of my process. I capture imagery from a wide variety of sources ranging from medieval illuminated manuscripts, to the hooked rug designs of Marguerite Zorach. My compositions are influenced by a rich history of Americana and folk art including hooked rugs, early American needlepoint samplers, and vernacular paintings."
