Lots of Lines Make Stripes

September 12 2021 - October 31 2021

Dragon, Crab and Turtle is pleased to announce a new solo exhibition by Ashley Colangelo entitled Lots of Lines Make Stripes opening Sunday, September 12th 10am-2pm. The gallery will be open Sundays from 10am-1pm.

Ashley Colangelo’s exhibition, Lots of Lines Make Stripes, presents new quilts, sculptures, and mobiles to explore function through abstraction. Her quilts use wonky stitching and scale to distort patchwork patterns adding to the discourse of traditional quilting. Each quilt is paired with a free-stranding cutout sculpture to play with unexpected color combinations and showcase the dialogue between hard and soft. Mobiles hang throughout the gallery, adding to her vibrant and whimsical world, moving slowly while reflecting and filtering florescent light.

Ashley Colangelo received her BFA at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She has shown work in print media and fibers nationally and internationally, including Dragon Crab and Turtle TRAVELS to Italy.  Colangelo lives and works in Gainesville, Florida.
