“FELT, SEW,KNOT, BOUND” curated by Leah Brown, Martin Casuso and Peter Symons, brings knitting, stitching, crocheting and a multitude of other hand crafts, out of Grandmas parlor and into the world of contemporary art.

The large scale projects and a few intimate works on view at “The Projects” in FAT Village, Fort Lauderdale, create a nostalgic environment that fluctuates between coziness and discomfort.
