Gloria DeFilipps Brush, professor, art and design, had work in the invitational 2013 Photo Review Auction Exhibition on November 9, 2013 at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA.
Eun-Kyung Suh’s work is included in “Textiles: The Art of Mankind” by Mary Schoeser, publised by Thames & Hudson publisher. “100 Floating Fears” (2008) is featured in two full pages with a review in the chapter 1. Mary Schoeser is a textile historian and curator who has advised English Heritage, the National Trust, Liberty of London, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
The juxtaposition of historical and contemporary examples highlights the skill and imagination of textile designers through the centuries as well as the remarkable range of achievements. Detailed images and informed captions illustrate the variety and allure of textiles, and the informative descriptions include histories of private collections, underscoring the importance of context for appreciating the exquisite detail of fabric and cloth
