Fiber artist Michelle Sales expresses herself forcefully with dyed and heat treated synthetic fiber in her exhibit “Accumulations”, in the Kris Mozena McNamer gallery at the Dubuque Museum of Art. Photojournals of decay and erosion created during travles to Central and South America influence her work. Each piece of material that Ms. Sales manipulates and then sews together represents a memory that she recalls while creating her work. The exhibition work provides viewers with a chimerical yet corporeal environment of human forms including torsos, arms, and life-size figures to examine.
