Tomorrow through Aug. 20
The Lancaster Museum of Art and History (MOAH) invites the public to check out fiber artist Orly Cogan’s solo exhibition, Threads of Entanglement.
Cogan’s exhibit will be on view from May 13 through Aug. 20. An opening reception will be held tomorrow from from 4 to 6 p.m. Orly Cogan is an Israel-born, multimedia artist who works and resides in New York. Cogan primarily works with fiber-based materials, painting, drawing, and collage.
Threads of Entanglement uses symbology, mythology, fairytale, and art history to bring attention to how women’s autonomy and stories are controlled today and questions these beliefs through the visual narratives that Cogan stitches. Her embroideries center imagery of women who are often unapologetically nude, displaying women as goddesses, both strong and independent. The result challenges traditionally held beliefs about women and their roles in society.
MOAH, located at 665 W. Lancaster Blvd., is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday, with extended hours on Thursdays and Fridays until 8 p.m.
