Drawing in Thread: Contemporary Embroidery
March 30 - May 2, 2010
This exciting exhibition includes the work of 19 contemporary artists who push the boundaries of the traditional meaning of embroidery. Traditional and non-traditional techniques of embroidery are used to explore historical, political, personal and humorous iconographies.
