The Gallery @ MSASS Features Jaquelyn Moravcik

Jacquelyn Moravcik's Artwork

Exhibit Dates: July 1, 2007 - September 7, 2007.

The Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences is hosting an exhibition by Jaquelyn Moravcik, a Cleveland artist. Jaquelyn's artwork captures the beauty not just found in blue skies and flowers, but exists in the middle of inner city concrete. Her work explores repetition, texture and color. The ways that we conceptualize the order and make sense of her artwork is through the visual patterns and design.

According to her artist statement, Jacquelyn’s series, Urban Artifaks, “explores the weathered patterns accumulated from centuries of use and neglect; layer upon layer building into an evolving collage of time. Dyed fabric is stamped stamped, stenciled, sprayed and painted with acrylic paints in a multitude of layers, each unrelated to the last. It’s then randomly cut and laid in patterns inspired by ancient and modern stonework.”

Jacquelyn Moravcik has been creating and teaching textile artwork for nearly 40 years. Her work is included in many private collections, and has been juried in national and international shows. Her textile pieces are for purchase. The exhibit runs from July 1, 2007 – September 7, 2007.
