Linda Filley: Well Heeled

March 5th – March 30th, 2017

Linda Filley has been making her Paper Creations for over 12 years.  They grew out of display work she was doing for the store Paper Trail in Rhinebeck, New York. Her Shoes evolved from the signature Paper Dresses she created for the store’s front window.

The Shoes are a transformation of everyday materials such as cardboard, brown paper, wallpaper, old maps and sheet music.  Sometimes these are new and sometimes vintage; it depends upon the inspiration.  Her work speaks to many themes: recycling, history, and nature with an eye to fashion and whimsy.

Linda is a self taught artist who was born in Glasgow, Scotland, and grew up in Montreal, Canada. She currently lives in the Hudson Valley.

Please join us for the opening reception for the artist, graciously hosted by the Library Associates on Sunday, March 5th, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. No reservations are necessary. Visit here for a preview of Linda’s extraordinary creations.
