Crochet Quote: Kate McQuaid

Today’s crochet quote comes from an article by Kate McQuaid of Boston.com. She wrote it in a piece about a crochet art installation at a gallery there. I think it’s interesting because crochet is so commonly considered a “women’s art”. Is it?

“The work blends the dramatic gestures of abstract expressionism, associated at its height with a particular masculine bravado, with techniques and materials associated with women’s work.”
