"Reflecting Pool" by Katherine D. Crone

Katherine Crone’s piece ( shown above) measures only 4″ x 6″ x 4″.  It  is part of  the Textile Study Group of New York’s  “Economies of Scale” exhibition, which will open next Wednesday, January 7, at the Phoenix Gallery, 210 Eleventh Ave. @ 25th St,  NYC.

The members’  fiber pieces on display were created using  diverse materials, techniques, and styles,  but conform to  a 6-inch-in-any-dimension size limit. The exhibition was juried by Lewis Knauss, artist, and professor at Moore College of Art & Design, Philadelphia.

Gail Martin talks about Ikat
November 17, 2008

Sorry that this is so last minute but Gail Martin, owner of the Gail Martin Gallery in NYC, will speak Wednesday night, November 19th, at 7 PM, at a meeting of the Textile Study Group of New York.

The topic of her talk is, “Artist: Unknown — Looking at 19th Century Central Asian Ikat.” The Gail Martin Gallery, established in 1987, was the first gallery in the US devoted to showing textiles as artwork, and this will be a rare opportunity to hear her speak about the dazzling ikat of Central Asia.
