June Featured Artist: K. Velis Turan

Guggenheim Gallery, 63 Huyck Rd, Rensselaerville, NY
K. Velis Turan (b. Washington, D.C.) is a mixed media fiber artist living and working in the Hudson Valley region of New York. Her artwork has been exhibited nationally and interna-tionally. Her focus, whether realistic or abstract, is always intensely graphic.
She employs surface-design techniques which include silk screen printing, fabric painting, photo transfer and embellishing with quilting, hand stitching and beading on the whole-cloth surface of her work. She enjoys the “zen” of free-motion quilting – adding her signa-ture “thread stokes” which become the life of each piece.
