Calendar (week of November 30th)
Felt Art Show
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Kosciuszko Foundation in Washington, D.C. invites you to Agata Peszko’s FELT ART SHOW on Sunday, December 4th from 4 to 7 p.m. at the K.F., 2025 O St N.W., Washington, D.C. 20036. Please come to see this highly original and beautiful art work. Agata Peszko is an Interior Designer and Textile Artist presently living in Washington, DC. Born in Poland, Agata has lived in many different countries including Poland, France, US and UK. While earning her Masters of Arts degree from the University of Krakow, Poland, Agata explored the wide range of art and design. She then studied graphic design and photography in Paris, finding yet other ways of expressing her views of the world. Agata’s artistic photography and portraits are in many private collections in USA and UK. Studying at the London College of Fashion, Agata discovered her current passion in visual arts — making textiles. She took it a step further at the KLC London School of Interior Design, exploring ways of applying textiles in interiors. Agata brings the ancient techniques of felting work into interior design. Through her creations of wool art wall hangings, she brings the softness of wool and the freshness of outdoor landscapes into interior spaces. Agata specializes in designing unique interiors with personal touch. She often integrates artistic photography portraits of her clients and felted art pieces into specific spaces. Her felt art pieces — wall hangings, wool sculptures, fashionable felted bags and vessels, and felted pillow cases — are always hand-made, and are a part of many luxury interiors around the Adriatic Sea, UK, Poland, and USA. Agata has recently moved back to Washington, DC, where she had previously showed her felt art pieces at the Textiles Museum. “I love looking at the practical ways of applying art to our lives. My art is a journey through the layers of nature and the psyche — into our emotional core, which, like the ocean bottom, remains unexplored virgin territory.” http://www.agatapeszko.com/ For more information call 202-785-2320.
