An opening reception is planned at 3 p.m. Saturday for a solo show of artist Dinah Sargeant’s “fabric paintings” — abstract quilts and dolls that tell a story — which opened at the College of the Canyons art gallery today.

The exhibition features a selection of Sargeant’s work spanning the last 20 years, with a particular emphasis on the artist’s passion for creating hand painted/collaged narrative quilts and dolls.

“When I view Dinah’s quilt work, I see paintings first,” said Larry Hurst, director of the COC art gallery. “But closer inspection reveals the intricate stitching and collage treatment of the surfaces. Meanwhile, her dolls act as three-dimensional figures derived from those paintings.

“Her works are pure magic, filled with subliminal meaning and powerful imagery,” added Hurst.

The College of the Canyons Art Gallery is open 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Those unable to visit the gallery during normal hours are welcome to contact the gallery to schedule a viewing appointment. The exhibition will continue through April 25.
