"Puns and Needles" exhibit on display through September 2

The Opening Reception for “Puns and Needles: A New Take On A Classic Women's Art Form” featuring fiber artist Phyllis Kluger was held June 20 in the San Marco Gallery in Alemany Library on the Dominican University of California campus in San Rafael.

The “Puns and Needles” art exhibition is on display in the San Marco Gallery during normal library business hours through September 2.

Phyllis Kluger’s quilted compositions in fabric make large, colorful statements, mostly in a satiric vein, on social and historical themes. For several years, her work has been shown and won prizes at juried exhibitions around the United States. A Berkeley resident, Kluger learned to knit at six and has never stopped. She was an art history major at Columbia and is the author of two craft books, the first called by Time magazine “one of the best needlepoint books of this or any other year.”  She also co-wrote two novels with her husband, Richard Kluger, a Pulitzer Prize-winning historian.
