Norma Minkowitz: Body to Soul

Bellarmine Hall Galleries

January 27 – April 21, 2023

For over five decades, Connecticut-based artist Norma Minkowitz has used fiber to explore the fundamental tensions of being human. Her crocheted and interlaced threads, stiffened into hard mesh-like structures, seemingly defy gravity to take the form of wearables, vessels, figurative sculpture, and drawings. Presenting a range of works spanning her entire career, this exhibition invites viewers to contemplate the dualities of delicacy and strength, nature and culture, body and spirit.
