Woodruff BAER fruit slices

“Modern Stitches: Needlepoint by Sally Baer” is on view through May 19 at Woodruff’s Art Center. A reception for the show is planned for April 26 from 5 to 7 PM.

“Modern Stitches,” an exhibit of needlepoint by Sally Baer featuring the artist’s original designs is on view at Woodruff’s Art Center in Mashpee Commons through May 19. There will be an artist’s talk followed by a reception with refreshments on April 26 from 5 to 7 PM.

Once Ms. Baer creates an original design she paints it on a needlepoint canvas then stitches it using a combination of threads and embellishments, integrating her passion for color and nature. “Modern Stitches is a colorful, playful, exhibit features a variety of subject matter; trees, women, fruit, houses and abstract designs, to name a few.

Ms. Baer’s interest in needlepoint began as a young girl, watching her grandmother create Bargello designs from scratch, a skill that made canvases seemingly emerge overnight. Ms. Baer’s love of design has long been augmented by her management skills. She studied business and economics at Simmons College before earning her graduate degree in Landscape Architecture at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design. She left the corporate world after many years to focus on her creative pursuits. Ms. Baer is the founder of BB Needlepoint Designs. She sells her unique designs at trade and trunk shows and teaches classes and workshops.

Ms. Baer will be hosting an Artful Stitching Techniques Workshop at Woodruff’s Art Center on April 28 from 2 to 4 PM. Pre-registration is required. Visit www.woodruffsartcenter.com for details.
