More International Press Coverage for Avianto in Arte Morbida, Italy’s Premier Textile Magazine

Avianto is a traveling exhibition. Stay tuned to hear about the next stop!

The Italian fiber magazine, Arte Morbida, has been very kind to me this year. I am gratified to have them promote my current solo exhibition of abstract, environmental art titled Avianto, on view at Tennessee Tech University in Cookeville, TN. 

They chose to feature three of my recent works in their announcement, Breastplate and Corona de Plumas both incorporate several versions of my feathers and wrapped sisal, which is a natural material that I am wrapping with fabric. White Feather Triangle 1 also appears in their piece.

The show runs from September 17 – October 14th, when I return to the University to give a Gallery Talk at 5pm in the Joan Derryberry Gallery.


AVIANTO focuses on Deborah Kruger’s recent work, which is motivated by the extinction of bird species, and the loss of indigenous languages around the world. Climate change and relentless consumption contribute to these problems. -Arte Morbida
