This exhibition is a unique opportunity to experience the exceptional detail and 3-dimensional quality of Salley Mavor’s bas-relief embroideries. Viewing her artwork up close is like immersing yourself in make-believe miniature worlds full of characters, props and scenery, all created by hand with stitching, fabric, beads, wire, and found objects.

The award-winning artist has spent four decades developing her signature style and working methods, carving out her own niche within the children’s book world and the fiber art community.

On view is a wide array of original picture book illustrations spanning her career, including the entire series of artwork for her most recent book, MY BED: Enchanting Ways to Fall Asleep around the World. Also on display are recent pieces that explore cultural diversity, migration, fashion, the natural world, and a range of social narratives, from the everyday to topical subjects.

Opening reception: Saturday, September 30 from 2 to 4 p.m. Open to the public.

Handicap accessible. Elevator from lobby to gallery

Parking: Ample general and accessible parking

Food: SVAC’s curATE café open Thursday–Sunday. Picnic tables available for carry-in.
