"Craft artist" Xenobia Bailey, really a fine artist who works in the medium of yarn, presents an exhilarating installation through March 8, 2009, at the Fuller Museum of Craft in Brockton, Massachusetts.
A portion of her Re:Positioning: Fiber Work by Xenobia Bailey is on show in the Museum's exhibition space, and it's a dynamic, life-filled display of large-scale crocheted mandalas. The show demonstrates the versatility and legitimacy of this 'domestic' craft as a vehicle for bold artistic statement.
The show not only showcases Xenobia's brilliant vision of the mandala as an iconic symbol,
it also offers a series of interactive lessons on how to crochet, featuring 'scrumbles'
of crocheted pieces created and embellished by museum visitors. A tour de force!
