Tension: Process in the Making features fiber art and textiles by New Hampshire artists. The artists explore tension – the act of expanding or widening. In a world that has become overstimulated and intense, the artists show that the process of making slows us down to find balance and create broad narratives within the visual aesthetics of fiber art.

JUROR: Jenine Shereos is an American artist who uses textile techniques alongside natural and organic materials to explore the complex and tenuous relationship between humans and the natural world. While her oeuvre includes installation, photography and sculptural works, she is best known for her intricately crafted leaves stitched entirely with human hair.

The work of Jenine Shereos has been exhibited widely both nationally and internationally and included in exhibitions at Centraal Museum in Utrecht, Netherlands; Musée Jean Lurçatet de la tapisserie contemporaine in Angers, France; Museo dell’Arte Fabbrile e delle Coltellerie in Maniago, Italy; Muzeum Miasta Gdyni in Gdynia, Poland; The Montreal Center for Contemporary Textiles in Montreal, Canada; and Long Beach Museum of Art in Long Beach, California. Her work has also been featured in The Los Angeles Times, The Boston Globe, Frame Magazine, and Mary Schoeser’s publication; Textiles: The Art of Mankind.
