Context: Language, Media and Medium at Fuller Craft Museum

Context: Language, Media and Medium, a juried exhibit by members of the MA/RI and the CT chapters of the Surface Design Association, continues its run at the Fuller Craft Museum until February 24, 2019. This collaborative project explores traditional, non-traditional, and contemporary practices of incorporating written language in textile-inspired art and design. It received an insightful review in Artscope magazine’s January/February 2019 edition, which you can read here.
