The City of Carlsbad’s Cultural Arts Office presents Edges Frayed, an exhibition that brings together three Southern California artists: Bhavna Mehta, Michelle Montjoy, and Irma Sofia Poeter, in a material-rich conversation about construction and connection. Using fine stitching and cutting, fraying fabrics and abstract shapes, text, color, texture, volume and shadow, their work weaves a narrative that seeks to clarify and extend the hidden layers of identity and understanding.
