NEW YORK, NY.- Cynthia-Reeves Projects in collaboration with the Newport Mill present Fabrications, a mixed media exhibition featuring work by 19 international, national, and regional artists. The exhibition opens on Saturday, June 26 from 4 - 7 pm. In acknowledgment of the building's history as a working woolen mill, Fabrications presents artworks using textiles in innovative, contemporary ways, and showcases projects that utilize weaving, sewing, knitting, crocheting, and spinning into unexpected forms and unusual materials.

Among the many projects, viewers encounter a curtain of dried fallen oak leaves delicately strung on cotton thread and suspended from the ceiling by internationally acclaimed Korean artist Jaehyo Lee; a "lace" tapestry by Lee Renninger, upon closer inspection, reveals itself to be "woven" from discrete porcelain pieces held together by hemp thread; Claire Watkins brings a collection of threaded needless to life through the use of electromagnetic fields and simple circuit/motor systems.

Fabrications features work by: Elizabeth Billings, Michelle Brody, Alisa Dworsky, Brenda Garand, Joan Giordano, Angela Hennessy, Carol Hepper, Daniel Julian Norton, William Dickey King, Milan Klic, Jaehyo Lee, Anne Lindberg, Soo Sunny Park, Lee Renninger, Jan Staller, Muriel Stockdale, Johnny Swing, Christine Tarkowski, and Claire Watkins.
