March Fiber Picks

The beloved groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, has predicted an early spring this year. That is a wonderful reason to get outside this March and visit some galleries! This month’s Fiber Picks is surely one to inspire; let’s check it out.

First, I recommend seeing Jennifer Tee’s work at the Tina Kim Gallery. This work will be on view until March 16, 2024. 

“Tina Kim Gallery presents the first solo exhibition of Jennifer Tee (b. 1973, Arnhem), Ancestral Beginnings, Sessile Beings. Following her recent exhibition at Kunstinstituut Melly co-produced with Secession, this major New York debut represents an opportunity to encounter Tee’s wide-ranging practice that comprises research, performance, installation, textiles, collage, and sculpture.

Ancestral Beginnings, Sessile Beings showcases multiple series of works such as hand-knit floor pieces, ceramics, and pineapple cloth tapestries. But the magnum opus of the exhibition is her Tampan Tulips, which are part of a seasonal serial work Tee has developed for close to a decade. These series of collages are made from pressed tulip petals, with motifs taken from the Tampan, square-shaped woven cloths that were exchanged during important rites of passage. The geometric and mirrored patterns visualize the orders of society as well as the universe and are seen as portals leading from the material to the spiritual world.” (

Next, AIR alum Natalie Moore will be featured in a group show at the Boiler @ ELM. There is an opening reception on February 29, and the show will be on view until March 28, 2024!

“Composed of an interconnected grid of warp and weft, Natalie Moore’s woven wire sculptures react to and, often, resist their structure. In her newest work Flood, Moore responds to the idiosyncrasies within the industrial interior of The Boiler, the work spilling out of a small rectangular nook in the historic brick wall. Intersections within the crossing wires suggest moments of disturbance, destabilization, and deconstruction at some points and sites of mending in others. Moore’s navigation of form and transparency evokes the constant movement and shifts of an ultra-sensitive ecological system searching for balance, tumultuously responsive to humanity’s turbulence.” (

Finally, I recommend seeing Paola de la Calle’s work in “The Psychic Landscape” at NYC Culture Club through March 3, 2024!

What a great variety of work to see as we close the door on the winter season!

Here’s a bonus exhibition in case you find yourself outside of NYC! Check out Sara Jimenez’s solo show at Mad Art Seattle, which is on view until March 28, 2024.
