The words over and under call our attention to something spatial, inviting us to imagine a maker’s hands systematically working, weaving, transforming filaments of thread or grass, bark or wire, into something whole – a basket, a rug, a fish trap, a fan.

Woven crafts have been part of the human experience since our earliest beginnings. In some cultures, the skill of weaving is tied to a mythical teacher, such as a spider weaving its web. Woven objects continue to be made around the world as objects of use, and also as works of art to be contemplated for their beauty and technical mastery.

This exhibition features over 75 works, including textiles, basketry, garments, hats, toys, jewelry, and more. Examples include giant fish traps from the Philippines, a Japanese silkworm basket and traditional woven rain boots, Egyptian woven textiles, and loomed beaded purses. Local makers include Kumeyaay artist Eva Salazar, weaver Sarah Winston, and others.

A major component of the exhibition is a large mural by San Diego artist Yomar Augusto, whose lyrical, linear paintings evoke woven forms. Visitors can watch Yomar paint the mural from Tuesday, October 24 through Friday, October 27.
