A World in String
The Textiles of Vincent Cherico and Betty Mason

2 May to 30 June 2012

Spring Street Gallery, Saratoga Springs, NY

A hooked rug featuring a grey and white pig on a blue background and round peach shapes across the border with the words 'Porky' across the bottom.

A World in String featured embroidery works by Providence-based artist Vincent Cherico (b. 1964) and hand-dyed and hooked rugs by Saratoga Springs-based artist Betty Mason (b. 1921). 


While both Cherico and Mason had been steadily created artwork for decades, A World in String was the first public exhibition for both artists.


Fantastical creatures and landscapes fill their work, threaded to life in textiles that are at once a celebration of the imagination and a deep understanding of their craft.

Artists: Vincent Cherico, Betty Mason
