Folkstore Artist Spotlight

The Folkstore Artist Spotlight (FAS) is a special showcase of work from a local artist or group of related artists. These exhibits highlight the local living traditions of the North Country through locally-made products which are on view and for sale in The TAUNY Center. The Folkstore Artist Spotlight Series also allows TAUNY to present a greater range of work by these local producers.   




Folkstore Artist Spotlight:

Kathy Montan

September 8 - October 26, 2018


The next Folkstore Artist Spotlight exhibit will feature the vibrant, imaginative felted wall art by local artist Kathy Montan (Canton, NY). Kathy’s felt artwork is a culmination of 30 years of working with wool. She began spinning and weaving wool from her own sheep, then felting hats and flowers, and eventually moved towards creating felted wool pictures. Taking inspiration from the textures and colors of the different wool she uses, Kathy allows her designs to evolve naturally. She combines both needle felting and wet felting to produce stunning effects.

All work on display will also be for sale.


The Folkstore Artist Spotlight series highlights the work of regional artists and artisans and allows TAUNY to present a greater range of work by these local artists and producers.
