The John Michael Kohler Arts Center, a nonprofit museum in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, pro­motes the work of self-taught and contemporary artists through original exhibitions, particularly championing artist-built environments. “Lenore Tawney: Mirror
of the Universe,” running October 6 to March 7, is one such show.  The Judge, 1961, in linen, and The Bride, 1962, linen and feathers, will be among the more than 120 works by the influential fiber artist who died at age 100 in 2007, along with hundreds of components from her studio.

From September 26 to October 3 at Unix Gallery, “Textiles Revealed,” part of the fourth annual New York Textile Month co-curated by Interior Design Hall of Fame mem­ber Lidewij Edelkoort, will showcase 11 contemp­orary Belgian textile designers. Among the installations, sustainable furniture, tapestries, and rugs by the likes of Alice Leens, KRJST Studio, and Geneviève Levivier will be the wool A Traverser by Ani Bedrossian and Flavien Servaes of BedrossianServaes, whose work is research-driven and experimental.

“Seeing Things” at Denny Dimin Gallery

A masters in architecture informs Erin O’Keefe’s abstract yet dimensional photo­graphy. In fact, it’s translating 3-D space into a 2-D image, and the distortion that comes with it, that is the “central issue” in her work. Pink Ground, an archi­val pigment print, exem­pli­fies that leitmotif. It’s ap­pearing alongside O’Keefe’s 11 other new pieces in “Seeing Things,” at Denny Dimin Gallery in New York from September 6 to October 26.
