Repair and Connect: Rejuvenating Work Made of Fiber and Cloth

Art and Healing Gallery
Pennington, New Jersey
January 20 - March 22, 2017


Gloria Hanson - "Artifications"

In order for healing to take place, connections need to grow, cell to cell, child to parent, parts of communities to one another, and country to country. Healing is a process done in collaboration and through connection. This idea is particularly suited to works in fiber, which have a long tradition of mending, patching, joining, and reuse. A variety of mediums and techniques are represented.
