Knit: Naomi London and Janet Morton
Knitting has been practiced throughout history in a variety of settings and for a variety of reasons, both functional and decorative. Around the world, knitting styles have become personalized and regionalized – some traditional patterns are identifiable with nationhood and political affiliation – others are anonymously produced for practical, often sentimental reasons. This 1995 exhibition featuring the work of artists Naomi London, Jean McRae and Janet Morton, examines these interconnected themes.
