Tom Lundberg's MICROCOSMS currently on view in the Hillestad Gallery

            Leave any preconceptions you might have about embroidery at the door of the Robert Hillestad Textiles Gallery when you arrive to view the magical stitched worlds created by Tom Lundberg. The artist wryly subverts notions of this genteel pastime by composing and painstakingly needling unpredictable, surreal, perverse or mystical dream states that serve as cautionary statements about our relationships with both the natural and the built universes we inhabit.
