LBCC SSH Gallery Exhibits Tapestries by Albany fiber artist, Kathe Todd-Hooker

An exhibit of tapestries entitled “Past Narratives” by Albany fiber artist Kathe Todd-Hooker, will be on display at South Santiam Hall Gallery at Linn-Benton Community College, 6500 Pacific Blvd. SW, Albany from January 4 to January 28.

The exhibit features over thirty handmade tapestries in a diverse and colorful range of styles and subjects, including many involving a complex combination of psychological symbols from the artist’s past experiences.

“My tapestries can be extremely personal,” says Kathe Todd-Hooker about her works, which she also refers to as “Momento Mori.”

Todd-Hooker, a long-time Albany artist, has been creating tapestries, exhibiting her work, and winning numerous awards throughout the last three decades. She will be sharing a little about her process and ideas at an artist’s talk and reception held at the Gallery January 12 at noon.

SSH Gallery is open Mondays through Fridays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
