Textile Art on Display at the Essex Library Through July

Textile Art By Nel Udo on Display at the Essex Library Through July

The quilted hangings of textile artist Nel Udo will be on display at the Essex Library through the month of July, and Ms. Udo will give an illustrated talk on the creative process that goes into her works on Saturday, July 24th at 11 A.M.

Nel Udo brings a unique vision to making quilted wall hangings. She uses both machine piecing and hand quilting. Her images are created from brightly colored fabrics, some of which she augments with over-painting or dying techniques. Most of her wall hanging themes are from nature. Nel grew up in a small village in the Netherlands right after WWII, and is a volunteer at the Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme.

The program is free and open to all, and reservations can be made by calling the Essex Library at 860-767-1560.
