    This exhibition explores contemporary approaches to making and using textiles, where centuries-old traditions serve as the foundation and concept behind embroidery, quilting, weaving, and mixed media sculpture. The methods of making are expanded upon with the assistance of digital language, tools and machines. These artists are pushing the boundaries by commenting on the process of making and redefining the purpose of textiles, while also paying homage to its rich and varied traditions. Viewers are offered a glimpse into the depth, nuance and voice that artists are giving textiles today.
