Play– fun or jest…a game? a toy? a bully? a tease? a hair pull? a game of tag? a snowball fight? a kick or a pinch?

Play is an experience we all know- one that can bring us laughter and perhaps at times bring us tears. The dualities that exist within play are what make it a rich subject for the 2011 spring exhibit at the Textile Arts Center.

Most everyone has happily played on the playground but also been left out, made fun of, and teased. Through the exhibit this complexity within play is revealed. In addition to the thematic thread of the exhibit, we also celebrate the extensive risks and playfulness that emerging fiber artists are exploring in their medium and techniques.
