I asked my friend Artist/Educator Jasmine Valandani to help me select the work for this show and to write a few sentences:

Sheila Klein’s work intertwines the realms of textile and architecture, bringing together the domestic, erotic, and transcendent. Softening grids and hooking texts, the thinking hands of the artist bridge the tactile and the conceptual, creating structures to house language and patterns to release thought: I know I know I know let go. O’s and X’s echo the crochet loops and knots, a haptic language of pleasure, enmeshed in the making of it.
