Artery show features fabric art and jewelry

The Artery show “A Thread Runs Through It,” running Friday, Oct. 9, through Monday, Nov. 9, features fabric artist Marjan Kluepfel and jeweler Cathy Cederlind. Although they work in different mediums, they are both are inspired by nature and use an abundance of thread in their creations. 

“I view jewelry as a functional form of art meant to enhance the beauty and personality of whoever the wearer might be,”  Cederlind said.

Many elements of nature influence her pieces — cloudy days, sun drenched beaches or lichen on rocks and trees. She embellishes her designs with semiprecious beads, Swarovski crystals, shibori silk and glass beads. Her embroidery translates a favorite scene into necklaces, earrings, bracelets, cuffs, and collars.

“I am an artist who uses fabric and thread as my medium instead of paper and paint….and a sewing machine instead of a brush.” Kluepfel said.

The textures, colors and prints of fabric fascinate her, giving her inspiration for new designs. Her bright colors and sense of movement illustrate her love of nature and her positive view of life.

The Artery is at 207 G St. in downtown Davis. Hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. For more information, call 530-758-8330, email [email protected] or visit www.theartery.net.

Marjan Kluepfel’s “Poppies” is an example of her fabric art, on display now at The Artery.
