‘Pieces of My Heart’ in gallery Feb 7-Mar 6

Have you ever had your heart broken? Break another’s heart? February, Valentine month, is a good time to reflect on relationships. Local artist Susan Fiebig offers a personal exploration in her exhibit, “Pieces of My Heart,” at the at the Fond du Lac Public Library’s Langdon Divers Gallery February 7 through March 6. The show is a visual retelling of a 10-year relationship that left her heartbroken.

The public is invited to an artist’s reception 6-8 p.m. Thursday, February 8, at the gallery. Refreshments will be served. The reception is free; no registration required.

Each of Fiebig’s pieces was inspired by cards and gifts she exchanged during the relationship. She incorporates some of her ex-partner’s artwork in her own works as literal and emotional inspiration. Fiebig hopes that viewing her artwork will evoke the love that exists in each of our hearts, love found or lost will be remembered and treasured, no matter how painful.

Her exhibit will include a piece that allows viewers to participate. This interactive concept will be revealed at the February 8 reception.

Fiebig is a Renaissance woman. She’s a photographer, most well-known locally through her project “Our Town: Fond du Lac, A Photographic Journey.” She’s published two books: “The Bloody Trail: In Quest of the Best Wisconsin Bloody Marys” and “Adventures on the Bloody Trail: The Quest Continues.” She owned The Enchanted Cottage/EC2 Gallery and Gift Shop. She’s the former curator of the library gallery. Her current work in collage combines her love of paper, photography and humor, creating vignettes that explore love, passion and turmoil, which she hopes stirs an emotional response.

The gallery’s volunteer curator is local artist Mel Kolstad, who can be contacted at [email protected]. For more information, visit the gallery’s Facebook page at facebook.com/langdondivers.
