Marsh embroidery at the Harlow

Sep 06, 2018

Hallowell — The Harlow presents “Tactile,” a juried art exhibition, Friday, Sept. 7, through the 29th at 100 Water St. The public is invited to meet the artists at an opening day reception from 5 to 7 p.m.

Spanning both floors of the gallery, “Tactile” pays homage to the decorative, domestic and utilitarian roots of textile art, while emphasizing the application of textile techniques for the purpose of communication and expression. Betsy Cook and Sally Wagley proposed, curated and, together with Harlow staff, juried the show, which features work by 26 artists including Rockland’s Tori Marsh.

The exhibition represents a wide range of techniques including stitching, weaving, felting and more. “Tactile” features work both large and small, two-dimensional and 3D, abstract and representational, made of synthetic as well as natural materials, made by hand as well as by machine, “pure” textile as well as mixed with other media.

The Harlow is a membership based 501(c)3 nonprofit; exhibitions are always free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Wednesdays through Saturdays from noon to 6 p.m.; and Sundays from noon to 4 p.m. For more information, call 622-3813 or visit
