The Fairmount exhibits CH artist's fiber series
Katie Mongoven is the latest artist to have her work featured at The Fairmount, as part of its emerging artist exhibition program. The exhibition features Morgoven’s fiber series, Periodic, and will be on view until Nov. 28.
Mongoven, who lives and works in Cleveland Heights, is known for her use of vibrant color and attention to detail—bringing unique patterns into focus.
She began the Periodic series at the Vermont Studio Center last winter, as an exploration of embroidery and a denaturing of its established purpose as a decorative embellishment. Each piece bonds the intangible qualities of light and color with texture, pulling inspiration from traditional quilt-making, geometry and pattern-making.
Her work has previously been shown at Arc Gallery in Chicago and site:Brooklyn in Brooklyn, N.Y. She received her degree in fine arts from the University of Michigan.

The Fairmount is located at 2448 Fairmount Blvd. It is open Monday through Friday, 4 p.m. to 2 a.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 5 p.m. to 2 a.m.
