Craft becomes fine art in the hands of Nicki Strouss, Esther Hall, and Megan A. Coyan. Each woman, working in her own tradition of paper, embroidery or textile design, creates fiber art that stretches beyond the boundaries of surface design and utility. Material and technique, though not ignored, are eclipsed by message, story, and meaning. This common thread is the foundation for “Tendrils, a Delicate Twist.” Coyan’s appliqué and woven pieces, rich with life’s designs, and Hall’s storytelling embroidery work play an intricate counterpoint to Strouss’s evocative ceramic, felt, and paper vessels.
