I just realized yesterday that Sheila Hicks was being exhibited in NYC. Love her work. Don't know if you're interested, but work by Ernesto Neto, large sculptural crocheted installations that one can climb into to sit, are at Tanya Bonakdar Gallery at 521 West 21st St. I've seen several posts about this exhibit and, as a childhood crochet enthusiast, am itching to see it. Enjoy!
Very envious...How I would love to see her work in the flesh! Did the shadow boxes also have glass?
such peace and harmony here
Yes Penny, these pieces were behind glass.
I amamazed about how many textile works and artists you have in America (USA and Canada).
You are right about how seeing a piece "for real" is a completely different experience than seeing reproductions. There is a direct physical relationship between oneself and the work. It sounds like you had a wonderful trip!
Thank you for taking the time to connect. Much appreciated.xx
