The Monday Club of Webster Groves presents “Reflections on Cloth,” a solo exhibition featuring artist Kelsey Viola Wiskirchen on view September 8-October 29, 2019 in the Monday Club Gallery. Free reception Sunday, September 8, 2-4 p.m.
Kelsey Viola Wiskirchen received her Bachelor of Fine Arts with a concentration in Fibers from Truman State University, and her Masters of Fine Arts in Fibers at the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts at Arizona State University.  In 2010, she spent a month volunteering in Bolivia with Projecto Artesania Zona Andina (PAZA), a women’s weaving cooperative consisting of three generations of women weaving and sewing together to support their families.  In 2011, she was awarded a Nathan Cummings Travel Grant to spend the summer in Limpopo, South Africa to volunteer with Mapusha, a women’s cooperative with a similar purpose of empowerment for women by creating income through weaving and creation of artisan products.  Kelsey currently lives in St. Louis, Missouri, teaching outreach and community classes in textiles. Continuing to learn and to teach others has become an important part of her life as an artist, and these experiences filter in to her studio practice..
