An exhibition of works of fiber and textile art by Swarthmore artist Alicia Ruley-Nock is on display at Swarthmore Borough Hall, 121 Park Avenue, Swarthmore through August 29, 2016. The public is invited to the artist’s reception on Friday August 5 from 6 to 8 pm.  The reception and the exhibit are both free and open to the public.

The exhibit is entitled “Illusions” and presents Ms. Ruley-Nock’s award-winning fiber/textile art.  Ms. Ruley-Nock is a self-taught artist and a native of Swarthmore, who describes her creative process as a key to balance in her life, and a reminder, as she pieces shapes, colors and textures together, that “all things come together for the good.”  She is inspired by the elements of nature, and what she describes as its limitless possibilities.

Ms. Ruley-Nock’s work has been exhibited as far away as Denver, as well as in local museums and at the Perleman Center Art Gallery at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.  Examples of her work can be found on her website, www.mysewdivine.com
