“The Frayed Stories of Life” Bay Area Exhibition
curated by Rachel Leibman
Opening Reception: Saturday. January 14th, 7-9PM
This exhibit features artists who view textile art as a through line that connects past, present, and future. These artists pay homage to the fiber art of our forebears but do not attempt to replicate it. Their artwork is made for and of our times, employing surprising materials such as moth cocoons, electric cables, watch parts, plastic bags and video tape. They use these objects to shape, and even mend, the frayed stories of life.
Featured Artists: Suzane Beaubrun, Deborah Corsini, Dale Eastman, Michelle Echenique, Shelley Gardner, Rinat Goren, Uma Rani Iyli, Rachel Leibman, Sasha Silveanu, Linda Tapscott, Leah Virsik, Holly Wong & Termeh Yeghiazarian
