Stitches in Time: Recents Works by Betsy Cook
July 29- August 24, 2016
 
Love Outside the BozEight years after leaving Augusta’s Senator Inn, former owner and artist Betsy Cook will present a solo show of her recent work at Monkitree in Gardiner. The show, entitled “Stitches in Time,” introduces a collage of paintings, most of which feature actual stitches—some made by hand, some by machine, some even etched or drawn into wax.
 
“Looking back over the time in which these pieces were created,” Cook says, “I have a prospective whereby I can appreciate this body of work as a visual diary of sorts, a chronicle of my life’s ‘rich tapestry,’ the best and worst ‘darn’ experiences, that which has ‘kept me in stitches,’ and the events which have challenged me to ‘thread the needle.’”
 
Monkitree, a gallery at 263 Water Street in historic downtown Gardiner, will host the show, with an opening reception on Friday July 29, 2016, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. A second reception the following Friday, August 6, will coincide with Gardiner Artwalk. The show will run through August 24.
