About the workSquare presents 82 current explorations by members of the Textile Study Group of New York. With just one restriction - that each piece be mounted on a 12-inch square wooden panel - these artists produced a diverse array of two- and three- dimensional expressions using fabric, thread, paper, wire, and some surprising materials that stretch the definition of "fiber art."
Founded in 1977 when six students of weaver Gayle Wimmer at the New School for Social Research in New York City decided to continue their study at regular meetings at each other's homes, TSGNY has evolved into a not-for-profit organization with members from throughout
the New York Metropolitan area and some from as far away as California. Monthly meetings feature guest speakers who might be prominent artists, textile historians, gallery directors, or museum curators.
