Press release from Bridgeport Arts & Cultural Council
My Father's Stuff II: Unfinished Works, from fiber artist and Connecticut resident, Pam Lacey, opens at the Bridgeport Arts + Cultural Council on Jan. 10, with a reception from 5—7 p.m. The exhibition will run from Jan. 10 to Feb. 13, 2013.
In her current work, Lacey is using fiber, chemical processes and objects of significance to record the residue of emotional events, while also revealing evidence of personal transformation. Sometimes organic and spontaneous, sometimes intentional and planned, the end result of transformation shares the message of the transformed. My Father's Stuff II: Unfinished Works, is a body of work Lacey created to sort and process the deeper spiritual and personal truths of her father's passing, using rusted objects he left behind.
