Wendy Weiss, director of the Robert Hillestad Textiles Gallery and exhibition curator, announces the First Friday opening of an exhibition titled Imperfect Pattern/Relative Embellishment, which features work by three Nebraska women artists. Pattern resonates across each artist's work with quilted fabric, embroidery, beads, structure and native materials. Artists Rebecca Williams, Phyllis Moore, and Susan Bertino explore family history and personal environment using textile materials in unconventional ways. The show runs until April 27, 2012.
