Threads – July’s First Friday Exhibition
July 5 - 31st, 2019
Opening Reception: 08/05/2019, 5-9pm
Join us for our July First Friday with returning artist, Linda Stabinski and her work, Threads. Drawing inspiration from the poem The Way It Is by William Stafford, Linda’s small works on paper are reflections on the thread of life: where it comes from, where it leads, how threads intertwine, what they mean, and how we discern which thread is uniquely our own.
Linda Stabinski is an intuitive artist and interior designer living and working in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. She pursues creative self-expression as a meditative practice during which she explores her inner emotional landscape and communicates with her higher spiritual power whom she calls the Great Creator.
Using her hands, old credit cards, and other non-traditional mark-making tools, Linda’s mixed media works are comprised of multiple layers, each one rooted in curiosity about texture, shape, line, and color. She is sensitive to balance, rhythm, and focal point, all born organically on the substrate during the creative process. Stabinski paints to the beat of her heart, rather than for the practice of a specific technique or for the focus on product.
Linda graduated from Franklin & Marshall College and, in the early 2000’s, studied interior design at the Pennsylvania College of Art and Design. Her work is held in private collections both in the U.S. and abroad.
