Abstract quilt with orange, yellow, and red shapes; Turning over a new leaf: Fabric constructions by Lisa Flowers Ross October 16 - December 1


Turning Over a New Leaf: Fabric Constructions by Lisa Flowers Ross features bright and bold abstract artworks using hand died fabric. Drawing upon themes of nature and daily observation, fabric and thread is transformed into simple shapes with an emphasis on line, color and composition.

Lisa Flowers Ross is a fiber artist living in Boise, Idaho. In her work she only uses red, yellow and blue dyes allowing her to mix her own palette of colors. Her artworks are pieced together using a home sewing machine which is also used to "draw" her own hand-maneuvered patterns of free-motion stitching to create distinctive textures. Flowers Ross holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Studio Art with an emphasis in Drawing, as well as a degree in Business. Her artwork has been exhibited in solo, group and juried exhibitions nationally and are included in private and public collections. In addition to being a professional artist she is a juried member of professional artist groups: Studio Art Quilt Associates, Northwest Designer Craftsmen, and Boise Open Studio Collective Organization. 

Turning Over a New Leaf: Fabric Constructions will be on exhibit from October 16 – December 1, 2017 in Metro Gallery in City of Reno, City Hall.
