Sandi Cirillo, featured artist for the month of January in the Picker Room Gallery of the Camden Public Library, will hold a reception and demonstration of how she creates her fiber artwork Sunday, Jan. 6, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the downtown library.

Cirillo has been a fiber/mixed media artist for more than 25 years, specializing in creating art that pleases the eye and invites touch. The inspiration for her work focuses on the textural qualities of manmade and natural fibers, which she incorporates into her work.

Cirillo is a retired art educator who gives many different fiber workshops all over the Northeast and North Carolina. She recently has been creating solar plate etchings, a printmaking process she learned from several workshops she has taken, and some of these also will be on display at the library. She prints many of her images on silk fabric to enhance the beauty of the design.

Cirillo’s work can be seen at Local Color Gallery in Belfast, as well as at the Lupine Cottage and the Lighthouse Arts Center in Bucksport. She is a teaching artist and works with Belfast Senior College, teaching drawing, art history and fiber classes. She also teaches workshops at her home studio in Searsport.
