The exhibition Beyond Materials: Woven Values at the Stamps School of Art and Design at the University of Michigan's Work Gallery. Takes a look at textile art outside the traditional. Beyond Material is curated by Kate Garman.  
 
Beyond Material has been shown in two other iterations before the Ann Arbor venue and featuring other artists, at Grand Valley State University Padnos Art Gallery and East Lansing’s Scene Metrospace gallery. The show features artwork that reflects the history of fiber work (which has traditionally been viewed as a "craft") as textile based art moves forward as an ever evolving, viable art medium. The exhibition is up until October 3, 2015.
