If ever a decade was pivotal for textile artist Penny Sisto, it was the ‘60s. “Two words can sum it up: escape and ecstasy,” she said. Spoken like a true participant of the counterculture movement. She lived in a commune in California, where she met future husband jazz musician Dick Sisto. Her exhibition focuses on ‘60s life, including civil rights, counterculture people and spiritual growth. The opening reception is Friday, Feb. 16 from 6-8 p.m. Programs include talks with the artist, musical performances and discussions. Peace, baby.
