Exhibition assembles an eclectic group of artworks that celebrate artists from different countries, who work with varied materials, and represent distinct artistic approaches.

Browngrotta Arts will present In Discourse: art across generations and continents, an eclectic group of artworks that celebrates artists from different countries, who work with varied materials, and represent distinct artistic approaches. Discourse will feature dozens of contemporary art textiles and fiber sculptures. More than 50 artists from 20 countries will be featured, including Marian Bijlenga, Esmé Hofman, Marianne Kemp, and Anneke Klein from the Netherlands. Included will be works from fiber art’s origins 60 years ago, current mixed media works and sculpture, and pieces created in the decades between — spurring a dialogue across generations and across continents.
