Stephanie Lewis Robinson is the juror for the South Haven Center for the Arts' Regional Online Juried Exhibition "Fantastical Flora and Fauna," which explores artist visions of the fantastical flora and fauna that live in their imaginations. This exhibition continues the celebration of Frida Kahlo and her beloved garden at her home, in Mexico City—Casa Azul—that inspired her artwork.
(Please note that "Frida Kahlo's Garden," the exhibition planned for Summer 2020, was cancelled by the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the South Haven Center for the Arts is continuing our work to celebrate Frida and her gardens through "Fanstastical Flora and Fauna" and the outdoor Frida's Garden exhibition that is displayed in downtown South Haven and surrounding neighborhood gardens.)
Much like a musical conversation, Stephanie Lewis Robertson sings to her hand-dyed and –printed fabrics while she works. Spirituality, ritual, nature, music, the concept of the “last worst time” and the current state of the world serve as the inspiration for the fabric and paper constructions.
