Arlette Rose Gosiewski combines fact and imagination in her intricate pictorial narratives that she calls "appliqué tapestries." Here she presents her vision of a wedding reception as it might have taken place years ago in Batschelet Hall on Main Street in Littleton, Colorado. The figural groupings, enlivened by carefully chosen details, imply additional stories. Even the glint of the bride’s ring suggests a happy life and sets a joyous tone.
