Think of textiles and fabric; rugs and quilts may come to mind. But, spend time walking through the exhibit Textile Meditations: Mary Fisher and Friends at the Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach, and you will come away changed. The exhibit's driving force is Mary Fisher, an internationally known artist, author and aids activist.
While most museum works remain strictly hands-off, there’s something about tactile art that brings you closer to the creator and the emotion they’re attempting to communicate. In the case of international artist Mary Fisher, some of those works represent pain, struggle and, especially, hope. Fisher joins four other artists (Jan Beaney, Jean Littlejohn, Jane Dunnewold and Marsha Christo) for an exhibition at the Armory Art Center
Making things with cloth might be a lost art in most households. But it’s not lost to art. That’s one of the takeaways of the textile exhibition at the Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach. The other is the tremendous variety in the more than 180 works by five artists. They’ve been brought together by West Palm Beach resident Mary Fisher, an artist, AIDS activist, and daughter of the late Marjorie and Max Fisher of Palm Beach.
