    Seven contemporary fiber artists —Rita Romanova Gekht, Bojana Leznicki, Susan Martin Maffei, Ilona Pachler, Mary-Ann Sievert, Armando Sosa, and Betty Vera—work with a variety of techniques, from traditional to experimental. Though equipment may range from manually operated to computer-assisted looms, each artist approaches weaving as an artistic medium. As vehicles for personal expression, their textiles reflect the artist’s background, influences, and individual artistic vision—whether encompassing ancestral traditions or commenting on contemporary life.

    The works on view at New Hope Arts Center further affirm weaving’s expressiveness as an art medium - one that can both embrace the past and present a fresh view of today’s world.

    Opening Reception: Saturday, November 16, 5 pm - 8 pm
    Gallery Hours: Friday, Saturday, Sunday from noon to 5 pm
