The Gallery, open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., is located in the Carvel State Office Building, 820 N. French Street, Wilmington. There will be a reception to meet the artist on Friday, November 2 from 5-8 p.m. as part of Wilmington’s Art Loop.

This solo exhibition of Virginia Abrams’ work will feature art quilts with abstract designs inspired by observations of the natural world. The natural abstract forms of reflections and structures along the edge of Seneca Lake, NY provide inspiration for the artist’s “Reflections” pieces. Her “Transitions” pieces are created from canvas painted with acrylics, cut, woven, sewn and mounted on stretched canvas.

The Hockessin-based fiber artist has a formal education in chemistry, which aids in the dyeing of fabrics. Abrams has exhibited her work internationally, nationally, regionally, and locally.
