Unchartered Territory

Fibre Art Exhibit

Marshall J. Gardner Center For The Arts

Suzy Vance’s “Unchartered Territory” includes a cornucopia of all things fibre: 30 paintings—using a combination of wool, silk, cotton, beads, flowers, buttons—along with 10 photographs which incorporate haiku poetry, all surrounding a forest featuring some of her smaller woven pieces.

From November 30 to January 31, the gallery will not be open for viewing except by appointment by calling Meg Roman at 773-822-8086. The exhibit will be made available virtually on social media.

There is a $5 suggested donation to view the gallery, and masks and social distancing will be maintained.

Regular hours:


Raised in the Midwest and widely traveled, today Suzy Vance lives and creates in the Indiana Dunes. She is a fiber artist who “paints” using animal and other fibers.

Mostly self-taught, Suzy began playing with fiber when her mother taught her to knit at the age of 12. One thing has led to another: knitting, weaving, spinning, and in 2007, felting. Lately, this creativity has spilled over into photography and “weaving” with words.

Suzy says, “My home is the Earth. It’s the rock on which we all create. The actual process of working with fiber is my way of embracing my journey from beginning to end. Through my creations I hope to imbue gratitude in each of us for all that we are and all that contributes to us…each day…every moment…and to inspire us to look beyond the picture…beyond what we see…into the possibilities we haven’t yet acknowledged or even considered…”
