In mathematics, a manifold is a topological space that locally resembles Euclidean space near each point. In your car, a manifold collects exhaust from your engine. Perhaps textile artist Kate Barber is just having fun with wordplay. At any rate, her new exhibition, ‘Manifold,’ should feature all manner of pleating and weaving and . . . folding. See for yourself this month when ‘Manifold’ takes over the AS220 Project Space at 93 Mathewson Street.
Head downtown Saturday evening for the opening receptions of the AS220 June Exhibitions. They remain up through June 25.
Do the whole, very walkable, route: The Main Gallery on Empire Street will feature the work of Elizabeth Jacobs and Kiro Sky. Artists Anna Shapiro, Julio Berrora, and Lara Henderson and Elizabeth Jweinat are showing in the smaller spaces.
(Pictured here is a detail from the woven, pleated, and stitched “Litany” by Kate Barber. How is this done?!)
Galleries are free and open to all. Masks are not required but encouraged.
Free, opening receptions, 5pm to 7pm, Saturday, June 4, AS220 Main Gallery, 115 Empire Street, (directions)
