Being a textile blog, I would be remiss to not mention this show. THIS retrospective almost requires a trip back to Philadelphia. Sheila Hicks is a Sculptor working in the medium of Fiber. She took a wrapping technique that I had only known as a way to make crafty baskets and used it as her own expressive sculptural medium. You should check it out if you’re on the East Coast.
