Before COVID-19 took over, Fenix Gallery hosted a successful opening reception of the Contemporary Fiber Arts Exhibition, Sewn In. The gallery has regained momentum and are set to officially reopen with a new exhibit curated by Laurie Foster, Pat Hennon and Octavio Logo: Chaos, Confusion, Creativity.

“With themes reflecting pandemic coping mechanisms – creativity overcomes chaos and confusion – just as it did in previous periods of Art History. The pandemic era of 2020 will likely be viewed by future generations as an outpouring of fertile minds, and Fenix of Fayetteville is a vital interpreter of history in the making,” according to a press release.

Chaos, Confusion, Creativity highlights the pandemic response, awakening dialogue on human boundaries and resilience, which is evident in these diverse works by Fenix members.
