Opening Reception September 22, 6-9PM Artists Talk: September 26, 7P
Fray is the unravelling edge of a textile, exposing the structure of the material, through time. The exhibition FRAY presents the work developed by the eight Artists in Residence at the Textile Arts Center. Over a period of nine months, from October 2015 to June 2016, the artists in Fray delved into concepts of landscape, time, form and storytelling, individually and as a group. The work showcased in the exhibition represents each artist’s process of exploration of these topics and features techniques ranging from weaving to inflatables, marbling and bobbin lace, proposing new visions for textiles in contemporary art.
Fray is part of the inaugural New York Textile Month programming this September, a month long city-wide festival celebrating textile creativity and promoting textile awareness.
