CEDAR MILL - Kat McCullough will be featured artist at the group show beginning June 7 at The Village Gallery of Arts and running through July 3.

McCullough works with fibers, paint, paper, beads, metals and hand stitching to create her original works of art.

'To me, art is joy and aliveness, and it is totally necessary to my well-being,' says McCullough. 'I just have to look at art, to touch it, to revel in its endless variations of color, shape and line.

'I love to go to art shows to feel the excitement of what other artists have discovered or tried and to browse through art books to see once again what some of my favorites such as Wolf Kahn, Romare Bearden, Allen Cox, Helen Frankenthaler, Georgia O'Keefe and Paul Klee, to name only a few, have given as gifts of expression to the world,' she adds.

The Village Gallery of Arts is a nonprofit, cooperative gallery at 12505 N.W. Cornell Road (at Cornell and Saltzman, behind Walgreen's and next to Cedar Mill Community Library) which has been in operation more than 47 years.

'In the last few years I have been working with fibers again,' says McCullough. 'There is so much going on in this field that is new and exciting. I just can't resist playing with all the outrageous ideas and techniques that fiber artists all over the world are presenting to us.'

The artist says, in addition to the materials mentioned above, she also works 'in mixed media acrylics, oil plus wax, paper collage and, occasionally, wild and crazy handbuilt clay.'

The gallery's hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. on Sundays.
