Shifting Tides: Convergence in Cloth

“Shifting Tides: Convergence in Cloth” opened this month at WORKS/San Jose in San Jose, California. The exhibition will be on view at this location until May 5, 2019.

“Shifting Tides” explores the state of the Pacific Ocean through the eyes of artists living along its coastline.

Forty-six artists from the seven Pacific-facing SAQA regions, from the northern reaches of Alaska to the Archipelago of Hawaii, are represented in this comprehensive regional exhibition.

Exhibition Juror Ann Johnston selected a wide range of mainland and island habitats and issues, as well as an array of design approaches and techniques.
