“Palette of the Forest” presents a stunning selection of fiber arts, weavings and prints inspired by the landscapes of Maine. This exhibition proudly features a group of artists local to Franklin County, including Juliet Karelsen, Mary McFarland, Ellen Roberts, Jan Royall, Dona Seegers, Cheriese Shanti, and Nelda Warkentin. The artworks on view showcase the intricate techniques of embroidery, quilting, weaving, felting, textile painting and printmaking. Together, these works build a visual dialogue revealing close observations of the textures, hues and delicate ecologies of the natural world while also engaging the larger experiences of natural phenomena and the sublime.
