WORKS, 21 East Main St./Route 1, will open its final show Wednesday, Aug. 12, through Sept. 13. The public is invited to an artist reception for Deer Isle’s Jennifer Lee Morrow Friday, Aug. 14, from 5 to 7 p.m. The opening is free and open to the public.

Morrow is a mixed media artist who has lived in Deer Isle for more than 20 years. She has BFA from Rhode Island School of Design and a MFA from the University of Kansas Lawrence. This exhibit features wall-hung collages and constructions that reflect her interest in bricolage.

Bricolage, French for “tinkering,”) refers to making work from a wide range of things that happen to be available. Morrow draws from and is inspired by the papers and other materials that come into her life and studio, and by the stories all around her. Each piece represents a narrative of symbols and patterns that is personal but has universal interpretation.

The pieces at WORKS are created in paper and other materials, but reflect Morrow’s training in and vocabulary of fiber history and techniques. Besides her studio work, Morrow has been the general manager at Opera House Arts for several years and she is the mother of a rising junior at Bowdoin College.

Gallery hours are Wednesdays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. — to 6 p.m. Fridays; and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The gallery, book and fiber shop is closing its doors at the conclusion of this season.
