I was lucky enough to visit the Williamsburg Art & Historical Center in Brooklyn, for the Women Forward show a few months back. Art creations were quite varied from one another and were distinguished by ideas, material, and medium, yet their only common denominator seemed to be that they were all created by women.
The most striking art piece(s) for me, was the one created by Agata Olek, a polish artist, who has re-discovered her crochet skills in NY, and the rest is history and miles of yarn. Olek crocheted a living room and some living… people. It was absolutely fascinating, colorful and creative. I kept thinking how long it took her to crochet.
I strongly suggest you peek into Agata Olek web site to enjoy her great concepts, sometimes real humurous.
