Kathe Chapman Grinstead: In the Clouds

July 10, 2013

Kathe Chapman Grinstead is featured in an article by J. Clift in Huffington Post's Arts and Culture Blog

In a community arts center just outside Philadelphia, tucked away on a verdant, winding road in the town of Wallingford, there is a great show. In The Clouds features the work of 11 artists who use cloud formations as subject matter, mostly in a literal, depictive way. As easy as it would be for a summer group cloud show to come off as light, relationships between several of the 2-dimensional artists compel deeper looking.

Carol Wisker Is Obsessed with Fabric

Carol Wisker has been what she calls an "obsessive sew-er" since she was a teenager: The patterns on the fabric, the endless details in the fibers, and the feel of the textures under her fingers are still a form of rarefied bliss to her. And, now at 62, she's attempting to share that simple pleasure with her audience.

Carol Wisker


As a mixed media artist I have the freedom to work in the medium that best describes my vision in paint, collage, assemblage, sculpture and fiber.

My interests in the environment, politics and war, protection, and gender are expressed abstractly using materials that are generally industrial or mechanical.

My ideas often come as a result of the process of "making" or "putting together"  unusual materials in harmony. I enjoy making the ordinary an object of beauty.
