MATERIAL ATTITUDES: Defying Textile's Stereotypes

Putting a serious snag in the antiquated image of textile and its many uses, the aptly titled show Material Attitudes: Defying Textile's Stereotypes offers a different perspective on this traditional material. The seven local artists featured cross the boundaries between art and craft by using conventional materials in unconventional ways.

The exhibit is part of Innovations in Textiles, a biennial collaborative event in St. Louis, Missouri that investigates the state of contemporary textile arts. This year, seventeen non-profit and private galleries join together to present exhibitions relating to fiber art created by national and international artists along with workshops, lectures and gallery tours. More information on the citywide biennial Innovations in Textiles 7 on the web. Material Attitudes: Defying Textile's stereotypes runs through Sunday, October 21, 2007.
