“Eyepiece,” a new miniature installation by Jennifer Strunge, opens this week.

3134 Eastern Avenue
Baltimore, MD

“Eyepiece” will be on view November 6—December 20.

An indisputable phenomeon the DIY art/craft scene, Jennifer Strunge’s goofy, stuffed Cotton Monsters are instantly recognizable and have been shipped throughout the world. With Eyepiece, her creatures inhabit the space like a dark corner of your imagination, peering back out at you. A Baltimore native and practicing artist and puppeteer since preschool, Strunge’s work begs to be touched and doesn’t take itself too seriously. She works almost exclusively with recycled cloth, giving old clothes, blankets, and linens an entirely new life as they are reconstructed into comforting (if bizarre) quilts, monsters and soft sculptures.
