 Parisian Life Triptych Parisian Life Triptych LOWER TOWNSHIP – The Lower Township Library will feature fabric collages by fiber artist Mary Stewart during the month of July.

Stewart is a fiber artist who has been sewing since she was ten years old. She said she enjoys the challenge of taking two dimensional materials and creating three dimensional pieces.

“Sewing really is a sculptural art, but it’s also like painting to me,” she said. “My fabric stash is my paint box. Each piece is unique and I work largely without patterns, letting the texture and hand of the fabric dictate what it will become.”

Stewart is now working on pieced and quilted fabric collages. She is a member of the Cape May Artists’ Cooperative Gallery and lives in Town Bank with her husband and two cats. Her work can also be seen at the West End Garage, 484 West Perry Street in Cape May.

The Lower Township Library is a branch of the Cape May County Library system. Located at 2600 Bayshore Road in the Villas, the library is open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday and Friday, and 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday.

For more information, call 609-886-8999.
