Kristen Anderson, Fiber Artist: Restorative Loops

I feel like the art is sort of a vehicle for showing that connection that I have, but because it's so hands on and you're working with natural materials... in a way it is sort of a natural experience just creating it. - Kristen Anderson 

Kristen Anderson's textile exhibit called Restorative Loops celebrates the interconnectedness between the phenological elements of the natural world and the cyclical nature of human existence. She spoke with us on the morning show about her work, her influences, how the pandemic impacted her workflow and the upcoming felting workshops for both youth and adults that she's teaching April 17th at the Watermark Art Center in Bemidji. 

For workshop registration information, check out the Watermark's "Make Art" page
