‘Sowing and Sewing’ A three person exhibition by Krystal Kay Lyon, K. Hieronymus W. and Jan Brandt
Summary: Colorful works rooted in the three artist’s instinctual need to grow and nurture.

Krystal Kay Lyon– using recycled materials, the artist creates fiber art sculptural portraits of women whom have influenced her. Oftentimes the artist secretly tucks notes and talismans inside the sculptures.

K. Hieronymus W.- Her paintings in this exhibition are informed by aerial views of farmland as seen on her latest trips.

Jan Brandt– From Jan Brandt’s childhood spent on a farm, punctuated with fantastical visits to arboretums and botanical gardens, to the many hours now spent tending her garden, the hand cut and sewn fiber installations she has created for Sowing & Sewing have grown out of a lifelong fascination with the otherworldly realm of plant life. Using abstracted interpretations of botanical themes underscores her interest in both naturally occurring and personal expressions of growth. Utilizing sewing methods taught to her by her mother and grandmother as a child, Brandt hand forms petals, vines, and leaves, oftentimes using thrifted and gifted materials. The abundantly bountiful dome-shaped sculptures created for this exhibition recall the nurturing teachings of her mother and grandmother, while also allowing for a sense of surreal, childlike wonder and understanding.
