Houston Center for Contemporary Craft (HCCC) hosts "Small Expressions 2017," the Handweavers Guild of America’s annual juried exhibition of small-scale fiber works. Featuring the work of 24 artists using a wide range of fiber techniques, the show requires that each piece is no greater than 15 inches in any direction.

Despite their small size, the works on view reflect a strong conceptual component, as well as emotive narrative content, a variety of materials and textures, and, of course, skilled craftsmanship. Mary Ruth Smith, an esteemed fiber artist and professor at Baylor University, juried this year’s applicants. The exhibition will be on view during the Contemporary Handweavers of Texas’ biennial conference, Crossing Threads/Connecting Cultures, in the Houston area.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through July 29.
