INFORMATION ABOUT THE WEBSITE, THE ART, AND THE ARTIST


ABOUT THE WEBSITE

This site is named in honor of Stanley Kunitz,(d. 5/14/06), the remarkable American Centagenarian poet whose autobiography The Wild Braid appeared shortly before his death.  Stanley and his wife, Elise Asher, a formidable artist who predeceased him by about 2 years, were both influential in my own art and poetry.  The reference from which "wild braid" is taken is Kunitz's poem "The Snakes of September." Suffice it to say that I believe my work is of the "wild braid of life."  


ABOUT THE ART

Marlene Vidibor's art works constitute multi-media art objects, organic in composition and design, inspired by nature to wear or display.  Vidibor designs from her concepts of natural life, often featuring insects, animals, people or objects as her use of her inconography dictates, in natural settings.  Butterflies, beetles,horses, humans, the microcosmos and the landscape around her often intertwine in both her art and poetry


ABOUT THE ARTIST

The artist has been active in fiber, watercolor/collage and bead art for over 40 years.  She has been writing poetry and making handmade books with her own poetry and art for nearly 20 years.  Her art has been widely exhibited in museums, galleries, libraries and is in private collections.  She is a member of CLARA, the online artists' registries of the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC, and the Columbia County Council on the Arts.  Her poetry has been widely published ih print in journals and anthologies and on the web in e-journals.
