    • “Some of the most interesting works reinvigorate the tradition of the sampler, a piece of embroidery that offers a religious or moral saying.(…) The Romanian artist Andrea Dezso has embroidered 48 cotton squares with bits of Transylvanian folk wisdom passed down from her mother. One square suggests, “You can get hepatitis from a handshake,” while another claims, “Men will like me more if I pretend to be less smart.” Each warning or cautionary tale is accompanied by a small, equally humorous illustration.” ––The New York Times
