ARTISTS & AUTHORS SERIES HOSTS REGIONAL FIBER ARTIST PHYLLIS PACKARD

Wednesday, March 4th 2015 - 7:00 pm at Edith B. Siegrist Vermillion Public Library
18 Church St

The Edith B. Siegrist Vermillion Public Library is proud to host artist and teacher Phyllis Packard in our Artists & Authors series on Wednesday, March 4th at 7 pm. Join us as Phyllis presents an intimate view into her processes, techniques, and subject matter.
Phyllis is a working artist residing in Vermillion. She has been a long-time small business owner, director of the Solid Waste Department for the City of Vermillion, and currently serves on the Clay County Commission. She uses the ancient tools, a multi-harness loom and shuttles to combine warp and weft in a mix of tapestry, pattern, and plain weave.
Her artistic imagery is primarily landscape interjected with seascape and mindscape. Recently she has been fascinated by the feel, structure and color of weaving and creating shawls and scarves that are highly utilitarian.
The Edith B. Siegrist Vermillion Public Library is located at 18 Church Street in Vermillion. For more information call the Library at 605-677-7060.
