Fanciful fringes vie with austere clarity, embroideries on a plane with objects crafted in the round. The variety of textile works is vast, ranging from geometrically ordered weavings in two dimensions to free forms in space. The exhibition shows anonymous pieces side by side with well-known positions such as those of Sheila Hicks and Elsi Giauque. This results in some surprising adjacencies of comparable perspectives from different periods. What all the works have in common is a powerfully creative hand and, resonating within it, a touch of magic. Quiet statements as well as the occasional activist message enhance the pulling power of these textile creations. Bound together by the softness of their materials and choice of techniques, the exhibits are interwoven in an impressive overall experience.
