Batik artist Mary Edna Fraser to speak at The Citadel

The Citadel’s first visual art exhibition in the Piccolo Spoleto Festival, “Ethereal Edges: Lowcountry Coastlines in Batik” will once again be on display in the Daniel Library.   The exhibit, which showcases large-scale batiks by renowned textile artist Mary Edna Fraser, will be available until Oct. 26.  Fraser will also hold a lecture at 6:30 p.m., Sept. 26, in Bond Hall, room165, followed by a book signing and reception in the Daniel Library.  The events are free and open to the public.

Fraser creates the largest batiks in the world and has work in numerous public collections including the Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum, the Charleston International Airport, and NASA. Curated by Fine Arts Professor Tiffany Silverman, also the director of the new Fine Arts minor, this exhibition features images of familiar Lowcountry locales as well as a new piece entitled “Over The Citadel.”

A companion series of photographs and batik tools documents the process of how these works were created, from the aerial photographs taken from Fraser’s vintage airplane to the swaths of silks that float suspended overhead.
