The University of Louisville Hite Art Institute is pleased to announce the opening of the exhibition Microcosms by celebrated textile artist Tom Lundberg at the Hite Galleries in Schneider Hall on Belknap campus. The show will open with a gallery talk by the artists February 23 at 6:00pm in Gallery X in the Hite Galleries in Schneider Hall. A reception will follow the talk.
Regarding the exhibition, Michael James, curator at University of Nebraska –Lincoln Department and Chair of Textiles, Clothing and Design, writes, “Leave any preconceptions you might have about embroidery at the door…when you arrive to view the magical stitched worlds created by Tom Lundberg. The artist wryly subverts notions of this genteel pastime by composing and painstakingly needling unpredictable, surreal, perverse or mystical dream states that serve as cautionary statements about our relationships with both the natural and the built universes we inhabit. That he manages on such a small scale to embrace many of the paradoxes and mysteries of life is nothing short of breathtaking.”
