“Fine Focus 06”

Work by 50 artists from around the world is on display in “Fine Focus 06,” showing the incredible range and diversity of the art-quilt movement. Rice Bowl and Bird by Terry Grant is a literal interpretation; a small bird is perched on a rice bowl, chopsticks nearby. While each of the materials used in Rice Bowl is a different pattern, it’s really the textures created by Grant’s stitching that give the piece its depth. Last Magnolias by Linda Colsh is more symbolic; it’s a magnolia flower outlined over a patchwork of colors and patterns, including upside-down trees, their leafless branches becoming roots. Judy B. Dales and Kim Ritter curated “Fine Focus 06” with Carolyn Dahl as guest juror. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. Through December 30. Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, 4848 Main. For information, call 713-529-4848 or visit www.craft-houston.org. Free.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Nov. 30. Continues through Dec. 30, 2007
