On Exhibition in the Esther B. O’Keeffe Gallery, of the Society of the Four Arts in Palm Beach is A Beautiful Mess:  Weavers and Knotters of the Vanguard. The Four Arts is collaborating with Fiber Artists- Miami Association to highlight the talent of South Florida fiber artists. 

A Beautiful Mess: Weavers and Knotters of the Vanguard is a colorful modern-day textile exhibition organized by the Bedford Gallery at the Lesher Center for the Arts in Walnut Creek, CA. It features a diverse selection of fiber arts including wall-hangings, installations, and monumental pieces. All pieces are made by an all-female roster of conceptual artists, the exhibition showcases twisted, tied, and braided works made from tactile and utilitarian materials like rope, yarn, clay, and wire.  Collectively, they push the boundaries of fiber art and elevate the status of weaving and knotting from craft to fine art. The artists infuse their works with personal stories and socio-political concerns to further revolutionize the previously marginalized genre of fiber arts. 

The Society for the Four Arts is the debut traveling venue for A Beautiful Mess, which will tour across the United States through mid-2024. The Four Arts is collaborating with Fiber Artists - Miami Association to highlight the talent of Southeast Florida fiber artists in the companion exhibition Talking Threads: Dialogues with Weavers and Knotters of South Florida. It features works made by Fiber Artists – Miami Association members who employ the same textile processes as the artists in A Beautiful Mess.
