Tasked with creating a surface design dictated by the shape and size of a kimono, New York and Connecticut-based fiber artists (from the group FiberartNE) eagerly took the challenge of this unusual focus. “Kimono Inspirations” is the result — and its 25 works are on display now, at one of Chelsea’s most consistently unique and inspired galleries.
