Rochelle Rubinstein's current exhibition with Lanny Shereck entitled HOMESTEAD is at loop Gallery until September 25, 2011. Homestead, features a collaborative installation of Lanny's house-like structures covered with Rochelle's block-printed, painted and embroidered silk - an exploration of the notion of home and of dwelling. Together the artists intended to evoke the permanence and strength of stone in combination with the fragility and comfort of fabric.
