There's a shift in our color palettes due to the change in seasons; but this group of textiles artists makes it hard to forget how appealing a monochrome color scheme can be. Andrea Donnelly's piece from the "Body Blot" series features a method of weaving, painting, deconstructing, and reweaving that results in satisfying composition. Ann Goddard's manipulation of paper as a fiber, alongside Piper Shepard's blending of printed cotton and corsage pins, elegantly challenge the notions of contemporary fibers.
