Entangled: A Fiber Exhibition
Some Things Looming

Reading, PA
September 12, 2015 to October 24, 2015

Our daily lives are complex and miraculous. There is an ever expanding interconnectedness that we have with one another in both our private and public lives. This interconnectedness can also feel overwhelming and pressure-filled. Communications can be ‘jumbled’ and misunderstood in a text ‘thread’, for example. Our relationships are complicated- family, friend, foe. ‘some things looming’ invites artists to connect with our audience as they interpret “Entangled” utilizing fiber techniques.
