Jamestown (CSi)   Thanksgiving weekend brings something new to Jamestown! A debut art installation by Virginia-based artist Patty Swygert opens at the National Buffalo Museum on Friday, November 27th, with a virtual opening reception and artist talk on December 4th.

The Museum’s Curator of Collections, Rachel Johnson, on Wednesday’s Wayne Byers Show on CSi Cable 2, said, Swygert is a conceptual and visual sculptor and fiber artist. Her installation, I AM BISON, uses paint, ink, earth pigments, soil, dyes, thread and yarn on paper, fabric, and found objects, to offer glimpses of the iconic National Mammal, from prehistory through present day. The installation features nearly 30 two- and three-dimensional works created by Swygert specifically for the National Buffalo Museum’s space.
