Penumbra — October 1 - December 18, 2022

Lissauer Gallery | Second Floor (not ADA accessible)

Katie Mongoven's embroideries are stitched portraits, stories stabbed into cloth, offering memories and reflections. Inspired by relationships and mundane and dramatic moments in her life, she recreates these raw and personal moments that touch upon a myriad of emotions in the semi-abstract form. Penumbra will open to the public during AppleFest on Saturday, October 1 from 12-4pm.

Katie Mongoven (Chinese-American, b. 1995) is a fiber artist based in Bloomfield Hills, MI. Born in Shanggao, China during the One Child Policy, Mongoven grew up in Washington, DC and received her BFA from the University of Michigan’s Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design in 2017. Mongoven has exhibited nationally for her innovative fiber pieces including University Hospitals in Cleveland, Vermont Studio Center, and Woman Made Gallery in Chicago. Her work is in public collections at Summa Health in Akron, OH and MetroHealth in Cleveland, OH. Mongoven has attended residencies at California Institute of the Arts (2017), University of Michigan (2018), and Vermont Studio Center (2018).

The Lissauer Gallery features art from Northeast Ohio artists. Founded by Jack and Linda Lissauer, Shaker Heights residents and longtime supporters of the arts, this intimate gallery is designed to encourage new and emerging artists, promote an appreciation of art, and support local artists. We also acknowledge partnerships with leading galleries such as Bonfoey Gallery, The Maria Neil Art Project, and Tregoning & Co.
