There are so many small galleries and museums in this country but unfortunately more often than not, we seem too busy with work, daily errands and life in general to slow down and explore these little gems. Thankfully this particular exhibit at the Westport Arts Center in Westport, CT. was recommended to us so we made a point to make the short journey from our home base in Bedford, NY to check it out.
The exhibition, curated by noted Art Historical Researcher Elizabeth Gorayeb focuses on Fiber Arts which she essentially describes as "woman's art", meaning that the craft of weaving, knitting and embroidery work are one specialty in the art world that elevates women artists. Unlike the traditional art world of painting and sculpture which typically celebrates the male artist, this craft of fiber arts is dominated by women.
