Six Bay Area fiber artists from the Nu Group have a group show at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles. Each artist expresses specific ideas through Art Quilts and Haiku, both of which enjoy a long tradition — one from America and the other from Japan. Both of these traditional forms of expression have changed over time to reflect new generations’ values.
