Of the Mind

Jennifer Lommers

July 30 – August 28, 2024


Reception: Thursday, August 15, 4 -7 PM

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

Look into a room of blurred realities as Lommers explores the tenuous moments that connect our past, present, and future. Embracing fiber arts and vintage materials as a measured conduit for healing and reconciliation – this multi-disciplinary, interactive show provides a unique view of the mind, simultaneously trapped and free.

Community Stitch Circles

In conjunction with the exhibition, Jennifer Lommers will be hosting two free community Stitch Circles at The Arts Center.

Drop-In Stitch Circle

July 23, 4-7 PM, The Arts Center Basement

Join Jennifer for an informal drop-in stitch circle. Bring your favorite fiber arts-related crafting project – knitting, crocheting, embroidery, cross-stitch, etc. to stitch in-community and share your maker stories!

Whether you want to stitch all night or stop by for a few minutes – everyone is welcome!

Need a little inspiration? Jennifer will have supplies for making hexagons to add to an interactive quilt. Any stitching means you wish to contribute to the project are welcome!

Of the Mind – Community Stitch and Share

August 15, 4 – 7 PM, The Arts Center Main Gallery

Join Lommers during the Corvallis Arts Walk for the Of the Mind reception and an informal drop-in Stitch & Share.

See samples from the various fiber art practices Lommers uses in her Installation and bring your fiber arts and mixed media questions – and feel free to sit and stitch your own fiber arts project, or make a hexagon to add to Jennifer’s interactive quilt project.

Supplies will be available and any stitching means you wish to contribute to the project are welcome!

If you have vintage materials you wish to donate to Jennifer’s community projects – please bring them along or contact Jennifer for details.
