Craft in America celebrated the opening of “Building the Essentials: Ferne Jacobs,” the first ever retrospective of the Los Angeles artist on April 2, 2022. You still have time to see the exhibition through June 8, 2022.

  Ferne Jacobs, Sketch Book 1978

Jacobs has been at the forefront of the revolution in fiber art since the 1960s.  This exhibition will span more than fifty years of pivotal work and include approximately 30 artworks created by Jacobs between the mid 1960s and 2022. Jacobs’ never before seen drawings and collages will also be on view. This momentous survey will be on display in Los Angeles, where Jacobs has lived and practiced for decades, yet rarely exhibited her work. It will explore Jacobs’ overall evolution, highlight her unrelenting search for meaning in structure, and provide insight into the impetus for her work.

On view: April 2, 2022 – June 18, 2022
