On Sept. 5 the Art Center at Linekona opened its textile exhibition—one of 27 happening in the city to coincide with the Textile Society of America Symposium. (Six of the exhibitions are at the Honolulu Academy of Arts!) Guest curator Mary Babcock (pictured below, right) of the University of Hawai‘i and Art Center Curator Carol Khewhok invited fiber artists from around the world to be part of Tattered Cultures: Mended Histories, and the results are stunning. The same night saw the opening of “Whisper-Romance III: Recent Joomchi Works by Jiyoung Chung” (pictured, above left). You can see the innovative works of both exhibitions through Sept. 28.
