Hedge Gallery is offering a contrast between the hard and soft this month as it presents Silk + Steel, a solo exhibition of the textile work of Rebecca Cross, paired with furniture designs by Kevin Busta and Alex Loos.
Cross created three-dimensional silk installations based on pieces of found wood, stone and slate collected along beaches, which she wraps in silk, ties and ties before removing them, leaving behind their traces in the pieces’ textures and shadows..
Busta and Loos also work repurposed materials, including industrial scrap metal formed into functional furniture.
The show opens during January’s 78th Street Studios Third Friday artwalk and remains on view through Fri 2/23.
