Sharp Art Gallery Presents  Rebecca Kobos, Fiber Artist

Sharp Art is excited to present the art of Rebecca Kobos, fiber artist, June 1-30. Rebecca will be at the Gallery on Friday, June 4 from 5 – 7:00 pm to talk about her process and answer questions. Please plan to join Elkader for First Friday!

Rebecca Kobos’s art reflects the fact that she spends her summers in Iowa on the Mississippi and her winters on the gulf coast of Florida. She uses fabric to create realistic and whimsical images in her collages.  Some of her favorite subjects are cats, birds, plants, faces, and landscapes. She spends time making her larger framed pieces as well as smaller 5×7 mini-collages that she makes into cards. Her work combines strong colors and patterns.  Rebecca uses free-motion stitching to draw into these “fabric sketches” to add detail.  Her pieces often include both fabric and fibers that she hand-dyes.  Rebecca’s focus is largely on surface design in her fiber work.  But she also spins yarn, paints, and collaborates with her husband on ceramic pieces.
