Fiber obsessions run rampant in The Wall Street Journal

I always joke that fiber is my alphabet. I can say an unlimited range of things. It can be friendly or aggressive, very sexy or totally pure. It goes from the absolute minimalistic to this intricate, laced, chaotic world.
— Sheila Hicks, artist

I am thrilled to see this article in The Wall Street Journal. The art world's new obsession is fiber! It's very exciting to see so many Bay Area connections like Josh Faught who lives and teaches here and Margo Wolowiec who completed her MFA at California College of the Arts. I can relate to the desire to feel the fibers. They deserve all of this attention.
