The presenter will be Diane Pollack.
She will talk about her current works which are monotypes with collage and thread. She will bring the implements she uses to create the layered effect in her work.
Her work incorporates stitchery and involves the exploration of matriarchal history and mythology. The archetypal use of the vessel to symbolize women’s fertility has powerful meaning to her. The dissecting and multiplicity of the abstracted female form suggests many generations of knowledge and life experience, both individual and collective. The singular and sometimes repeated dancing women also appearing in her work suggests celebration and worship..

She has taught art to people of all ages She is an exhibiting member of Art/Place Gallery in Fairfield, Ridgefield Guild of Artists, Westport Artists Collective, and a curator at the Bruce S. Kershner Gallery in Fairfield Public Library. Her works are in corporate and private collections.
