"The effectiveness of such a provision was demonstrated in "Twist, Tie, Multiply," the fanciful collaboration by JoAnna Commandaros, Anna Divinsky and Karen Page that evolved throughout the festival and invited audience interaction.
The artists were regularly in attendance, working on the installation and with visitors. But even better was a mom, Betsy Commandaros, who served as a one-person welcoming committee, unobtrusively drawing onlookers to the art and then graciously explaining its various components, which included wall painting, metal sculpture and crochet and shibori elements."

Pittsburgh City Paper:
"The visually lush "Twist, Tie, Multiply: Hands in Action," by fiber artist Karen Page with Anna Divinsky and JoAnna Commandaros, encourages viewer participation. Featuring textile-based organic forms, the installation is also meant to develop organically: Every visitor-made contribution, composed of dried beans and gauzy fabric, is used to fill out the curvilinear metal armatures at the space's heart. Visitors' works appear alongside crocheted sea anemones, knitted corals and gorgeous oil-pastel pods made by the artists themselves."
