Fragments of Life: Textile Art by Barbara Goldberg
Barbara Goldberg (1931 - 2016) was a textile artist, devoted teacher, tireless advocate for fiber art, and longtime Professor in Textile Design and Fiber Arts at UMass Dartmouth. To celebrate her art, teaching and life, the College of Visual & Performing Arts at UMass Dartmouth and the Goldberg family are sponsoring this retrospective exhibition of her textile art. This show exhibits highlights of her work, including two life-size, indigo-dyed shibori self-portraits. "In Fragments of Life, work created by Barbara Goldberg during her five-decade career as an artist is displayed together for the first time. Her remarkable body of work was created through experimentation, research, travel, and interaction with colleagues and students. Barbara taught in many educational institutions and arts centers, culminating with her position as Professor of Textile Design and Fiber Arts at UMass Dartmouth. A tireless advocate for her students and for the field of fiber art, Barbara was involved with many textile organizations. She researched the history and culture of textiles and surface design techniques employed throughout the world, with an emphasis on indigo dyeing and shibori. The selected works, drawn from the entire span of her career from the 1960s to the 2000s, allow those who knew Barbara to remember her and others to meet her for the first time."
