Host Bill Goodman is joined by artist Laura Petrovich-Cheney, whose artwork is currently on display at Berea College’s Doris Ullman Gallery. Petrovich-Cheney creates art by turning salvaged wood into a wooden patchwork quilt. She repurposes debris left behind by natural disasters such as Hurricane Sandy, the Gatlinburg, TN fires, and a series of nor’easters. Wood that was once clapboard siding, floorboards, or kitchen cabinets, is transformed into vibrant, wooden quilts. You can meet Laura and learn more about her work when she visits Berea’s Ullman Gallery on February 7th at 4:30pm. Her work will be on display until February 15.
