Art Exhibit Reception: Normandale Art Instructor Karen Gustafson - A Thin Thread

Normandale Art Instructor Karen Gustafson will have the public opening reception for her A Thin Thread Exhibit on Wednesday, October 12 from 4:30 to 7 p.m. in the Fine Arts Gallery.

Gustafson's new body of work diverges from her past 2D practices, to now break new ground as she combines image and sculptural creations using thread, fiber, 3D spatial definition, and animation.

"A Thin Thread is my exploration of materials, process and play, of being present in the studio and letting intuition guide my way," said Gustafson.

The exhibition started on October 3 and runs until November 4. Gustafson's work is engaged with the intersection of art and science, and focused on underlying structures and patterns to research, reveal and inform. You can find more of her work by going to
