First Friday Art Night at the Museum: Leslie Skibinski

Museum of the Earth

Visit the Museum of the Earth on First Friday Art Night, February 2nd, from 5-8 pm, to see the marvelous fiber arts and photographs of Leslie Skibinski. The Museum will be open for extended evening hours for this show in the Museum's Gift Shop.

Leslie Skibinski, a native Pennsylvanian, has lived all over the United States. Her home base now is in the Finger Lakes region of New York. As an artist, her focus is in fiber arts, photography, wood carving, and sculpture. Her first introduction to the fiber arts came when she learned to knit and crochet as a child. She expanded into piecing quilts back in 1992. One of the wall hangings featured in in the show at the Museum of the Earth is based on a photograph taken off the coast of Cornwall, United Kingdom. In her photography, Leslie’s subjects include insects and flowers, many taken in gardens that she has planted or worked in over the years. Other photos in her show were taken from places she has lived and traveled in from Delaware to Alaska.

Light refreshments will be served, and Skibinski will be on hand to talk about her work. Admission to her show in the Museum's Gift Shop is free, regular admission rates apply to Museum exhibits. Skibinski's artwork will be on display through the end of March.

While you are there, take the opportunity to enjoy evening at the Museum of the Earth. Included in museum admission is the "Mapping the Planets in Silk and Sound" special exhibit by artist Mary Edna Fraser.
