As Canadian Art magazine puts it:  The relevance of soft-craft techniques in hard-nosed contemporary art gets a strong push this summer from “Fibred Optics,” a group show at the Richmond Art Gallery.

Organized by the newly Toronto-based curator Andrea Fatona and shown previously at the Ottawa Art Gallery during Fatona’s recent term as curator of contemporary art there, “Fibred Optics” focuses on four artists who use textiles in their works: Halifax’s Frances Dorsey, Montreal’s Jérôme Havre, Toronto’s Ed Pien and Ottawa’s Michèle Provost.  Read more here
