Exhibition Title: TEXT & TEXTILES
About: TEXT & TEXTILES, a solo exhibition of Deborah Kruger’s environmental artwork will be on display at the Block Gallery in Raleigh, NC from October 30, 2024 – February 28, 2024
TEXT & TEXTILES focuses on Deborah Kruger’s current body of work, which is motivated by the extinction of bird species, and the loss of indigenous languages around the world. Human-induced climate change and habitat fragmentation contribute to these problems. Saturated colors characterize Kruger’s work and often mimic bird plumage. She hopes to raise awareness, and inspire action about these impending losses that affect all of us.
TEXT & TEXTILES is open to the public Monday – Friday from 8:30am – 5:15pm. Related programming will be on the website later this year.
