"The State of Hand Stitch – New Embroidery by Texas Artists" is a survey of eleven women artists working with thread and needle at a time when embroidery is increasingly recognized as a medium of choice by serious artists. A hand stitched piece can tell a story, become a vehicle for social comment, or embellish a surface with exuberant color and texture. This exhibit displays a range of subject matter, scale, approach, and materials. Included in museum collections and publications, displayed internationally and recognized for excellence, the work of these artists demonstrates the many possibilities of contemporary stitch.
