Hicks, and Persis Karim – have created an exhibition that promises to be a unique opportunitey to view melded work of different art forms. Sixteen fiber works are the roots of inspiration for 16 ekphrastic poems created specially for this exhibit. Together these eight women have create a beautiful exploration of ancient fundamentals in texture, color and words.
