TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) - A new exhibition at the Dennos Museum Center features works by fiber artists such as a basket woven with cedar roots and a necklace braided from wool, nylon and pig intestines.

The two-part show titled “Extreme Fibers: Textile Icons and the New Edge” opens Sunday in Traverse City.

The Traverse City Record-Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1NRVbyf ) the works represent dozens of established and emerging textile artists from 25 U.S. states and a number of other countries. Dennos Museum Director Gene Jenneman says it will be a challenge to exhibit all the works.

The Dennos Museum Store will host an exhibition and sale of wearable art by Michigan fiber artists in conjunction with the show.

“Extreme Fibers” runs through March 6. It’s the first textile exhibit at Dennos since 2011.
