Ohio Dominican University's Wehrle Gallery, 1216 Sunbury Road, Columbus, will host an exhibition of German Village-based textile and fashion designer Celeste Malvar-Stewart's work from Sept. 6 to Oct. 25.

The exhibit, "I AM: Exploring Spiritual Connectivity through Fiber," features sustainable and ethical pieces and will be on display at ODU to help celebrate the gallery's theme of "The Year of the Body."

An opening reception for the exhibit will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. Sept. 6 in the gallery and is open to the public.

In addition to the various pieces on display, visitors will have an opportunity to interact in a self-reflective space where they can create a physical connection from one textile installation to another using local fibers.

The exhibition also will include a short video that offers an in-depth look into Malvar-Stewart's work.

A featured artist with Columbus Makes Art, Malvar-Stewart also teaches as adjunct faculty at the Columbus College of Art and Design. The Wehrle Gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Admission is free.
