Lois Goglia art exhibit, talk Friday at Silk Road Gallery
Featuring Americana Scarf
Artists have been responding in different ways to 2016’s political climate. Silk Road Gallery has one of those responses in an exhibit by Lois Goglia of Cheshire called “Personal Perception: The Line Between Art and Fashion at the Silk Road Gallery.”
Goglia will give a talk on her artwork at Silk Road Gallery (83 Audubon St.) Friday from 4-6 p.m.
Three-dimensional wall pieces in the exhibit, titled “New Dimensions,” and the exhibition’s invitation represent changes in contemporary printing methodology. Further, the artist has designed an Americana scarf as a reaction to the political climate, according to a gallery release.
Goglia believes that people should “do what they do best” to uphold the values inherent in the United States Constitution, which she feels are in danger today, the release says. The scarf and print of the same design (with words that proclaim the Pledge of Allegiance and parts of the Gettysburg Address) include shapes of states across the United States.
Goglia is donating 10 percent of the profit from the Americana scarves she sells to Planned Parenthood in New Haven, the gallery said.
