Art, Galleries

Drawing not only her inspiration but also her materials from nature, textile artist Emily Donovan transforms the leaves, seeds, and flowers of native plants into dyes that imbue her work with an earthy sophistication. Don’t confuse her style with batik, although the look is similar and also combines dye and beeswax on paper. Donovan’s work sinuously integrates form and color to create imagery that grows up from and flows across the page. This exhibition also documents the plants, dyes, and community gardeners she worked with in creating this collection.
