Ferguson’s New Art Exhibit

Susan Ferguson, adjunct assistant professor of English, has a weavings and wall hanging exhibit from September 3 through Oct. 30, 2019 at the Ruth E. Stocksdale Gallery of Art on the William Jewell College Campus.   The gallery is open 9am-6pm weekdays.  The exhibit is titled “Inside Out: The Weavings and Wall Hangings of Fiber Artist Susan Ferguson.  There will be an opening reception from 2-4pm on Sunday, Sept. 8.

The following is a description of the exhibit from the Arts KC website: “Inside Out” is a visual arts exhibition featuring the woven wall hangings of fiber artist/weaver Susan Ferguson of Independence, MO. The exhibit focuses on the impact of creativity and art on healing and emotional health. The exhibit includes at least ten new large-scale wall hangings created in 2019. In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, the exhibit also includes several works in Ferguson’s “Bra Therapy Project,” a collection of woven pieces exploring the emotions and perceptions associated with surgery and treatment for breast cancer.  Ferguson’s works are primarily abstract in style and are woven from traditional and non-traditional materials. Her works have previously been displayed at the Leedy-Voulkos Art Center in the Crossroads district in Kansas City, MO (2019); InterUrban Art House, Overland Park, KS (2019); Anita B. Gorman Conservation Discovery Center, Kansas City, MO (2018); and Liberty Community Center, Liberty, MO (2018). The exhibition is sponsored by Liberty MO Arts Commission, the Transient Guest Tax and William Jewell College.
