Date: Wednesday, April 27, 2022
Cost:  $75, $90 Non-members

Cotton, wool, polyester, silk—fiber is felt in nearly every aspect of our lives. The artists in Subversive, Skilled, Sublime: Fiber Art by Women mastered and subverted the everyday material throughout the twentieth century.

ALSO ON VIEW:
Sargent, Whistler, and Venetian Glass: American Artists and the Magic of Murano. In addition to works by Sargent and Whistler, the exhibition features paintings and prints by Frank Duveneck, Thomas Moran, William Merritt Chase, Maurice Prendergast, Maxfield Parrish, Louise Cox, and Ellen Day Hale. These are featured alongside rarely seen Venetian glass mosaic portraits and glass cups, vases, and urns by the leading glassmakers of Murano, including members of the legendary Seguso, Barovier, and Moretti families.

The thirty-four selected artworks piece together an alternative history of American art.
