Karen Gubitz at the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center

Karen Gubitz is the solo artist in the exhibition, Beyond Craft, on display now through June 10th at the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center in Birmingham, Michigan.

Gubitz is a self-taught, award winning fiber and mixed media sculptor. Realizing that her passion lay in creating art, in 2011 at the age of 60, Karen retired from her law career to create art full time. Her work explores the expressive possibilities of combining natural and non-traditional materials with methods and techniques that have a deep and rich history in working with fiber – loom weaving, basketry, knitting, crochet, netting and knotting.
