Text in Textile at Seton Hall's Walsh Library Gallery is Fanny Viollet's premiere exhibition on the East Coast. Her work has also been widely shown in galleries across Europe, Japan and the West Coast of the U.S. Fanny Viollet, a French artist known for her works on fabric, has taken the medium of needle and thread (traditionally known as "women's work") and infused them with references to the past and present to create whimsical works with feminist undertones.
