Pat Kroth WPR Interview about the "Nest"

   Wisconsin Public Radio just aired my interview about the "Nest" Installation. 
You can hear it at: http://www.wisconsinlife.org/story/artist-creates-piece-destruction-tornado.

Nest  @Pat Kroth
    The Nest is a fiber art installation that was exhibited at the Anderson Art Center in Kenosha, WI January-March 2015. The onsite creation is the artist’s reflection on the tornado that travelled through Verona and southwest Wisconsin in the early morning hours of June 17,2014. It is constructed of branches, debris, fibers, and includes sound recordings and interviews with Verona residents. The artwork is 5’ tall, over 11’ in diameter.
You can see more images of the Nest at: www.krothfiberart.com

"That Secret"  @Denise Havlan

  Denise Tallon Havlan is an award winning fiber artist from Plainfield, Illinois.   Her work has been displayed in art galleries, national and international exhibitions. Fundamentals of composition, color, and design combined with the technical skills in manipulating fabric bring a new dimension to the term “art quilt”. Denise allows each individual piece to determine its own creative process.
 
    Technical methods range from hand and machine applique, machine embroidery with the use of textile paints, dyes, inks and color pencil to alter and enhance fabrics. The “message” of a work often occurs without  pre-planning.  Since the actual construction process takes some time original ideas may develop further or change as the piece comes to life. Denise believes a greater depth of tactile complexity and realism is accomplished through the combination of hand painted fabric combined with self-altered commercial fabrics to realize the image.
