Dates & Times
Saturday, March 31, 1:00-4:00 PM
Marilyn Klinkner is known for her pottery, decorated with herons and other wildlife. She also makes collages using scraps of fabric: pieces of silk, vintage cloth and rags, etc. All are ironed and treated with equal value. She uses scraps as she finds them to make the compositions without cutting the fabric. She uses embroidery thread and a needle to sew/draw 15 x 15 inch works of art. In 2013, Marilyn exhibited her fabric works in an international fiber show, “Freedom from Hoarding” in Sebastopol, CA. Marilyn’s work has also been featured in exhibits in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Texas. Marilyn spends her time tending to a prairie and creating art in Galesville, WI. She has a degree in art and worked as an artist in the Wisconsin Artist in the Schools program and was a PerCent for Art participant.
