Body Conscious: A fiber show at Craft in America Center

Today is the opening of Craft in America Center’s contemporary fiber show, Body Conscious: Southern California Fiber. Featuring nine artists operating in and around the framework of the human body, this exhibition ventures to capture the aura of fiber art in Southern California, as well as to chart the region’s potential impact on the craft.
We are thrilled to have Miyoshi Barosh’s site-specific installation in our window— a whimsical group of legs made from machine-knitted found sweaters, polyester and cotton filling. Her work is not only inescapably cheerful, but an achievement both technically and conceptually. We welcome you to visit the Center to see her work along with other examples of some of the most exciting work in fiber today.
