Rewoven showcases 24 artists whose extraordinary creativity and commitment to nature, environmental, and social issues take flight in a convergence of painted, woven, netted, sewn, assembled, and installed artworks. Artists employ diverse materials - from bamboo and silk to Styrofoam, bubble wrap, plastic, paper wrappings, and  steel wire. They leave craft far behind to cross the boundary into contemporary strategies that result in works of whimsy, wisdom, and beauty, and address critical issues in abstract and figurative terms of philosophical, literary, cosmic, and quotidian dimensions.
