The New Textiles: Transformed

A group invitational, The New Textiles: Transformed will include works showcasing a variety of unique techniques and unlikely materials that mirror the look of textiles and explore the definition of what a textile truly is. This exhibition will transform the possibilities of textile art through textural forms and media. Textiles can spring from unlikely sources including paper, glass, metal, silicone and plastics. The New Textiles celebrates the bold sculptural forms of baskets, the graphic imagery of tapestries and all surfaces that are embellished both narrative and abstract.
