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.
