      Plastic Sea, Changing Earth RECEPTION

      The BGA at the Belmont Library PLASTIC SEA/Changing Earth The Quilts of Agusta Augustsson (Sept. 7-Oct. 23) Open during library hours: Reception, Sat., Sept. 14, 2-4PM Assembly Room Melrose artist Agusta Agustsson presents a series of quilts about Climate Change. "My fiber work is influenced by my work as a landscape artist. Almost every day when I take the time to look there is something poignantly beautiful to see. It might be the sun striking a cloud formation or the texture of leafless trees climbing a mountain. I don’t want to express a vista in my work, but rather those clear, almost painful moments of sight. I want to evoke the natural world, not render it."
