Schneider’s exhibit, “Beautiful Faces: Thread Paintings Exploring the Imperfect” are on display through Oct. 5 in the Epping Gallery, in the Building B hallway, opposite the bookstore.
Schneider began quilting in 1996 and discovered the pleasure of working with cloth, paint, dye and thread. Her interest in the Japanese concept of Wabi-Sabi strongly influences her work. She exhibits her work nationally and internationally and she maintains a studio at The Starline Gallery in Harvard.
