About this Exhibitor / Bio:
Yuh Okano is a 20 years Brooklyn-based textile artist and just located in Chestertown MD, whose pieces are inspired by a deep fascination with the natural world. Her work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art and is in its permanent collection (https://www.moma.org/artists/23267). Yuh's pieces are invitingly tactile. They employ a range of color and texture that strives to be as subtle and finely detailed as the organic forms her works suggest. Their soft feel and gently flowing shapes evoke a sense of connection with plant life, flowers, and ocean creatures.
