A fantastic kickoff to this weekend’s massive slate of art openings, the Textile Center debuts three brand new fiber art installations. There’s the long-developing, Jerome Foundation-backed, multi-artist showcase Observe • Record • Relate; there’s A Family Affair from Julie Serik, who rips, crumples, and tears delicate paper-made dresses to raise awareness about domestic violence; and there’s also another multi-artist show in the Studio Gallery that shows off the artistic talents of Target’s Product Designers and Developers. 6-8 PM.
