Cary Wolinsky: Fiber of Life

October 8, 2016 - June 25, 2017

Cary Wolinsky: Fiber of Life presents a series of visually arresting images taken by Norwell artist, Cary Wolinsky.  Wolinsky’s career as a photojournalist for National Geographic magazine has taken him all over the world and yielded numerous historical, scientific, and photographic essays.  But it was a 1972 trip to India that sparked his 30+ year exploration of the culture of textiles.  Wolinsky’s evocative images in his Fiber of Life series richly convey the impact of textile usage and production on eradicating societal boundaries and fostering human connection.  His images, including saris drying in the Ganga Valley of Northern India, a half-shorn sheep near Melbourne, Australia, and a felt carpet maker in Xinjian, China, are executed with skill and a keen eye for beauty, while serving to chronicle the human experience as seen through the lens of textile traditions across the globe.

Join us for a screening of the documentary by Cary Wolinsky called Raise the Roof here at Fuller Craft. The screening will take place on Friday, March 24. There will be a meet and greet from 6:30 – 7:30 pm, with a cash bar and light refreshments. The screening of the film will follow at 7:30 pm. Following the film, we’ll have a Q & A panel with Cary Wolinsky and Rick and Laura Brown, who led the project. Admission is $15/person.
