I wish that I had made it to this exhibit's opening but am totally hoping to make it over and see it. Plus I know some of the fabulous artists included so even more reason to head over.

The exhibition focuses on work where sewing is integral to the making and looking experience. Art/Sewn attempts to blur the distinction between art and craft, so relevant to today’s art world when so-called fine art has adopted craft forms and techniques and craft artists are making non-functional work. What the work shares is sewing—sewing on woven fabric, on paper, felt and skins. Sewing as an artistic means, as expression, as feminist statement.
