Extraordinary, imaginative multi-dimensional sculptures made of colorful yarn by Delray Beach artist Michelle Drummond will soon be on display in a dramatic art exhibition in downtown Lake Worth Beach.
The exhibition Michelle Drummond: Systems will take place October 14 through December 3 at the Cultural Council for Palm Beach County’s Solo Gallery at its Lake Worth Beach headquarters. Free and open to the public, exhibition hours are Tuesday through Saturday from noon to 5 p.m.
Working with various weights and colors of yarn to build three-dimensional forms on and off the canvas and wood panel, Drummond incorporates her fiber with acrylic painted surfaces to create whimsical narratives of strength, perseverance, and optimism. Her new piece Restless (2022) is a reference to the drive to pursue the opportunities needed to achieve goals and aspirations. It is a visual representation of the mind constantly churning, assessing, and questioning as well as a vision of thoughts translated into action. These and other philosophical ideas are the foundation of Drummond’s work in this series of Systems.
