Artist Katy Korkos will put on a one-woman show at the Fuller Lodge Art Center

By Nancy Coombs

More than 50 pieces of fiber art by one artist, Katy Korkos, will grace the walls of the Fuller Lodge Art Center for one week, Nov. 15-20.
“I’m not sure that it’s because I’m such a prolific artist; maybe it’s because I’ve been making things for about 40 years and I start a lot of new projects,” Korkos said.
The work is mostly representational rather than abstract and mostly inspired by natural forms — birds, leaves and trees. She says that almost everything else is inspired by words and thoughts about life.
“I started out as a strictly utilitarian quilter,” Korkos said. “The work of quilting is very contemplative. When your hands are busy, your mind is free to wander and think and philosophize, so one quilt leads to another.”
She has made at least 300 pieces since she started in 1973, the same year she graduated from college and the same year she started working in restaurants. She said that she starts as many as 30 pieces some years and usually finishes at least 10 or 12.
“Unfinished work doesn’t bother me – but I don’t finish a piece
