ECVA Conversations | Spirit Driven Stitching
Icons in Fabric
with Rev. Posey Krakoswky
April 27, 2023 Thursday
7pm Eastern, 6pm Central, 4pm Pacific
Posey Krakowsky is a lifelong artist and iconographer whose medium is found objects, beads, painting, and calligraphy. At her 2022 one-woman show at Church of the Heavenly Rest Manhattan, she displayed several large works, each multi-layered and rich with color, symbol and meaning.
You are invited to join Posey in this ECVA Conversation, titled Spirit Driven Stitching, as she talks about her practice of attention and observation as she builds her pieces. Often taking months to complete, Posey works layer by layer until, in her words, “the magic happens.”
The Episcopal Journal interviewed her for her recent show and you can watch the interview here, https://episcopaljournal.org/spirit-driven-stitching-quilts-by-posey-krakowsky/
