SHARON HAVELKA: SALMON SKIN FRIED… AND OTHER DELICACIES
Beverly and Sam Ross Gallery (Christian Brothers University) / 650 East Pkwy S. January 27 - March 5th
SHARON HAVELKA constructs mixed-media quilt sculptures from old clothing and other found objects. Her work highlights the marginalized, the overlooked, that which is considered weird or unusual, and stitches them into beautifully crafted and highly detailed objects. She is inspired by her unique upbringing as a descendent of the Delta Chinese, and from her skills and experience learned as an ICU registered nurse. She received the Arts Accelerator Grant from ArtsMemphis and was an artist-in-residence at Crosstown Arts. She has had work shown in Quilt National and Fiber Arts International. Sharon was born, lives, and works in Memphis.
