“Interpreting The Surface” exhibit reviewed

As I wrote in my last post, I am honored to be a part of the “Interpreting the Surface” exhibit currently at the Furchgott Sourdiffe Gallery in Shelburne, VT.
Amy Lilly wrote an indepth review  of several works in this exhibit in the online magazine Seven Days VT including my piece, Beneath I.  It’s always interesting to me to hear how someone else sees and describes my work. Amy’s precise language makes me appreciate how carefully she observes. Here’s what she wrote:

“In Karen Kamenetzky’s colorful “Beneath I,” hand-dyed red silk stitched with jostling, circular shapes peeks from a chasm-like break in green-dyed felted wool. The wool’s textures are innumerable: large twists, thin ridges, protozoan shapes, swaths of tiny knots worked in green thread. Kamenetzky finds her inspiration in microscopic cellular life, and that metaphor fits “Interpreting the Surface” as a whole: The closer the eye gets to these surfaces, the more astounding seems the amount of work that went into their creation.”

Thank you, Amy!

The exhibit will be up until May 26th.
