Jane Lombard Gallery opened its doors to two summer exhibitions ~ Loose Ends, a group exhibition celebrating women working in textiles, and Jane Justin’s ‘The Colour of Words II.’

Building upon her 2020 exhibition, Jane Lombard: The Colour of Words II debuted at Jane Lombard Gallery only a few weeks before stay-at-home-orders were issued in New York City, The Colour of Words II ruminates on her practice-based research as a recipient of a residency award at the Mark Rothko Centre in Latvia during the summer of 2019.

The group exhibition, Loose Ends, celebrates women working in textiles. Loose Ends celebrates textiles as infinite: decorative and functional, intentional and intuitive, structured and amorphous, masculine and feminine, ageless and ancient, present and vanishing. Within each loose thread lies the potential for a new connection.

The selection, featuring artists Kirsten Hassenfeld, Victoria Manganiello, Laura Marsh, Erin McQuarrie, Carolina Ponte, Aiko Tezuka and Ulla-Stina Wikander, explores the universal applicability of fabric, bridging cultural tradition with contemporary finesse, and emphasizing the medium’s constant state of evolution.

Loose Ends and The Colour of Words II will be on view through August 6, 2021 at Jane Lombard Gallery, 58 White Street, NYC.
