'Fabricated' fabric-art show opens in Delray Beach

Tasha Lewis’ “Pearly Skull” resembles something out of a Georgia O’Keeffe painting, an antelope-skull sculpture studded with clear pearls around its eye sockets and black yarn wrapped around its antlers. Delray Beach painter Beth Sher adds yarn cross-stitching to a portrait of Chinese women clad in military uniforms. Stitched whimsies such as these are everywhere at the Cornell Art Museum in Delray Beach, which recently opened the fabric art show “Fabricated.”

Fabrics that can be stitched, sewn, snipped with scissors, quilted, dyed, appliqued and glued appear in the 15-artist exhibit. Other highlights include a felt-applique landscape by Los Angeles artist Billy Kheel, who depicts a mountainous view of homes from behind his studio; and Delray Beach sculptor Amy Gross’ “Spora Mutatus,” a fiber-based re-creation of microscopic fungus.

When: 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday and 1-4:30 p.m. Sunday; through April 23

Where: Cornell Museum of Art at Old School Square, 51 N. Swinton Ave., Delray Beach
