Gallery curator featured in Sept
Local artist Susan Fiebig will be featured in the Fond du Lac Public Library Langdon Divers Gallery in the exhibit, Past and Present Works, through the month of September.
The exhibit illustrates Fiebig’s growth as an artist, including samples from Our Town: A Photographic Journey – Fond du Lac from 2005, which provided a bird’s eye view of downtown, and current collage works that encourage the viewer to look within.
The public is invited to an artist’s reception on Friday, September 20, from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m., in the gallery. Refreshments will be served. The reception is being held in conjunction with the downtown Fond du Lac Tour the Town art walk, held every third Friday of the month. More information is available at www.tourthetownfdl.com.
Fiebig, a collagist, author and photographer, is volunteer curator of the library gallery; she schedules, arranges and designs the exhibits on display. She also is vice chair of Wisconsin Visual Arts and a member of the Museum of Wisconsin Art.
Fiebig sees collage as her best form of expression in her growth as an artist. She creates vignettes that tell stories of lust, sadness, joy and wonder. Viewers find themselves in one of her collages; remembering a past love, mourning a loss, or embracing happiness.
Fiebig utilizes many forms of paper in her artwork, including her favorite: pages and images from discarded books and magazines. Fiebig was among the group of artists and artisans who crafted the desk made from books that’s the centerpiece of the library’s FDLPL Express branch near Festival Foods.
The library gallery is open during library hours: 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday; and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
