"Nowhere is the vision, audacity, technical mastery, and sophistication of contemporary wood art better represented than in the collection of Robert Bohlen and Lillian Montalto Bohlen." "Employing many different types of wood from the common place to the exotic as well as different carving, turning, and finishing techniques, the artists represented have created works that amuse, astonish, and inspire. Their efforts broaden our understanding of what art can be and enrich our experience of the world around us, challenging us anew to think about materials, forms, and textures. Through essays and interviews that explore the evolution of wood art as well as current concerns and practices in the field, Nature Transformed: Wood Art from the Bohlen Collection offers a comprehensive look at a unique contemporary art form at a vital moment in its evolution. Its publication is a welcome event for those who already know and love wood art - and a revelation to those who have not yet fully explored its possibilities."--Jacket

"The best architects are often defined by a singular residential commission - for example, Fallingwater by Frank Lloyd Wright or the Farnsworth House by Mies van der Rohe.

Designed and constructed in the second half of the 1980s, the house also exhibits the Grottas exceptional collection of crafts and furniture."

Pricked : extreme embroidery by David Revere McFadden( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pricked takes the pulse of the international embroidery as practiced today. It is not by any measure an exhibition about embroidery, but rather an exhibition of contemporary art made by artists that use embroidery as a medium to communicate their ideas and visions." ... "Language & art; Process & materials. The pleasure of making and the communication of meaning is vital in the work of each artist in Pricked: extreme embroidery. These are artists that have chosen embroidery as the most direct way to bring their artistic visions to life. A return to materiality in art practice is indicated by the work presented by each artist, ; it also documents a shift in the way art functions in our lives. These works suggest that the real can trump the virtual, that low-tech activities can be as impressive as high-tech systems, that personal visions are as valid as generic pronouncements, and that process and materials carry their own meaning in contemporary art."--Page 10 & 97
