  • T³: Textile, Text, Texture investigates the value of communication, linking literacy with visual imagery. Featuring NC artists Peg Gignoux and Leslie Pearson, this exhibition integrates art with prose and poetry. Gignoux's textile collage constructions link literacy with visual imagery. Her collage work allows her the freedom to work loosely with a variety of materials, including hand-dyed silks, linen, and vintage papers. Her expressive compositions are layered and full of stories with complex textures and colors. Pearson's large-scale fiber installations investigate memory, identity, and the transformative value of communication. She is drawn to things that have layers of history - handwritten letters, journals, old books, stamps, or bits of fabric. She uses narrative therapy approaches such as letter writing and journaling as a starting point to visually express both lived and imagined experiences.
