Event Type Exhibition Description Salley Mavor is an award-winning fiber artist whose artwork creates make-believe miniature worlds full of characters, props, and scenery, all created by hand with stitching, fabric, beads, wire, and found objects. Enchanting Threads: The Art of Salley Mavor showcases the exceptional detail and three-dimensional quality of her fabric relief illustrations and sculptural needlework. This exhibition includes a wide array of original picture book illustrations spanning Mavor’s career, including the entire series of artwork for her most recent book, MY BED: Enchanting Ways to Fall Asleep around the World. Among the eighty works in the exhibition are recent pieces that explore cultural diversity, migration, fashion, the natural world, and a range of social narratives, from the everyday to topical subjects. Salley Mavor 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. Her work is applied in many ways, including children’s books, editorial illustration, and stop-motion animation Organization Hosting the Event The Albany Institute Phone Number 5185056212
