    The Women’s Fund made a WF Flash Grant in September in support of this exhibit to help celebrate the Women’s Fund Brand Relaunch. The purpose of the exhibit is to spur thoughtful contemplation and spirited conversation. It highlights women artists, who examine their own lives and issues through fabric, as a result, we all have a chance to reflect on the issues each artist portrays, and ponder why textile art is viewed as “less than” other art forms.
