As well as original two-dimensional printed, dyed and stitched textiles and paper, the focus of this special art show by Shannon Wardroper features large-scale folded textile sculptures inspired by the “choice versus chance” fortune telling game that children play. This idea of choice versus chance could be applied to the environmental world, said Wardroper. “It is our engagement with our natural world and the paths we mindfully choose that will determine our outcome.”
