Fort Morgan, CO. 01/08/14.  The Center for Arts and Community Enrichment (CACE) Gallery of Fine ArtImage: 2)	Hart’s drawloom as seen from the back. is pleased to announce the textile exhibition of Jacque Hart. The exhibit opens on Friday, January 24 with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. at 300 Main Street, Morgan Community College’s downtown location.

“From the time I started learning to weave, I looked for ways to express pictorially what I wanted,” says artist Jacque Hart. “The drawloom was my answer. I was fascinated with the way loom-controlled patterning works; I was able to utilize this tapestry method to begin communication with the audience. The weaving was able to move from utilitarian to aesthetic— from functional to artistic.”

The name of this show is Catenary. Catenary comes from the word, “catenoid.” As an example, imagine two posts standing apart with a chain connecting the two. The chain does not hang straight across; it is bowed towards the ground between the two posts. This is a catenoid. 

“My art connects me to spiritual realities and the world around me. It gives me all of the space I need to communicate and express my understanding of our human condition.  My son's art will be displayed with mine. We are connected in many ways: physically connected through the relationship between mother and son, spiritually connected through our beliefs and values, and in this show connected through our art,” explains Hart.  

“My work has gone through many stages from working only on traditional Navajo rugs, to working in white fibers and loom-controlled patterning, to learning different weave structures, how they act, and what they can do,” notes Hart. “I continue this exploration and knowledge in the small pieces that I produce. My current tapestry work is about color manipulation, mixed media and pictorial work involving spiritual reflections.”

“I don't tell the viewer what to think, but hope they will interpret for themselves the woven canvases,” adds Hart. “I can't think of a better way to share a part of myself with each viewer. I love it when viewers see things from their own perspective of their lives and the world in which we live.”

The Gallery has scheduled hours on Fridays from 4 to 6 p.m. Hart’s exhibit will run through March 7. The CACE Gallery of Fine Art is free and open to the public.
