Apr. 11, 2015: "Home grown artists Mali and Piper" Reception

Chimera Gallery

Saturday, April 11, 5 - 7 p.m. Chimera Gallery invites you to the opening reception for Piper Dalton and Mali Fischer. Both women grew up on Lopez Island and now live in Portland, Oregon.

Piper's past knitting projects have focused on hefty fishermans sweaters and other warming duds. Since moving to the city she has had the amazing opportunity to learn the knitting machine, and as a result her work now reflects that. She will be showing airy cotton knits for spring and summer.

Mali now works as a free lance illustrator. She employs delicate, repetitive lines and dream-like imagery to explore themes of identity, loneliness, femininity and the hopeful and therapeutic qualities of plants.

Show closes May 9th

Gallery Hours: Thursday through Saturday 10-5, Sunday 10-3.
Lopez Village Plaza. 360-468-3265.
