Gallery Talk: Elizabeth Ingraham

Thursday, November 11 from 4-5:00 at Haydon Art Center artist Elizabeth Ingraham will be discussing her installation pieces “Locator Map” & “Terrain Squares” which are currently featured in the Haydon Art Center’s exhibition “Stitch: Modern Embroidery”.

Ingraham has used topographic software, dividing Nebraska into an eccentric grid.
