Art in Fiber
"Fans of fiber art have reason to head to Boston’s North Shore this May. Celebrating their 90th anniversary this year, the Marblehead Arts Association presents “Art in Fiber” at their galleries in the restored King Hooper Mansion.
Paper, with its mashed and intertwined fibrous DNA, holds court in book-based art by Carole P. Kunstadt. Her ongoing “Sacred Poem” series de- and re- constructs the 1844 and 1849 editions of the sacred text “Parish Psalmody.” Kunstadt fringes, stitches, knots and even gilds papers from the antique paper tomes to make beautiful art objects layered with meaning."
