Talking Threads

Curated by Karlyn Benson, the group exhibition Talking Threads at Susan Eley Fine Art in Hudson celebrates the creative diversity of textiles and fabrics. It features the work of seven artists: Eozen Agopian, Melissa Dadourian, Ana Maria Farina, Courtney Puckett, Padma Rajendran, Richard Saja, and Hanna Washburn. Collectively, this colorful exhibition presents an experimental twist on traditional methods of sewing, quilting, weaving, and embroidery by pushing these mediums into new realms of personal exploration and expression. Saja’s “IDYLL” (2024) revels in the formal patterns of French toile de Jouy (or “cloth from the town of Jouy,” near Paris) decorative fabrics, infusing it with a contemporary edge via its cosplay-esque figures, while Hanna Washburn’s “Embrace” (2024) is an amusing sculptural object resembling an infantile toy consisting of bright recycled fabrics and found objects.
