Hats are conceived as a functional item of clothing, worn to protect a person from the cold, rain, sun and wind. But they are often also used on religious grounds, for social standing, or purely as decoration. In some cultures, a head covering is rule of law. Berets, turbans, keffiyot, helmets, boaters and Easter Parade finery - not to mention the once omnipresent Israeli kova tembel - hats and headgear for both men and women reflect community, status and/or personal taste. To sharpen the focus, the Seamgallery, a gallery dedicated to fiber art, is presenting an attractive exhibition entitled Head Covering, a display of photographs and actual samples in a variety of techniques and materials by 16 artists. The show was curated by Sima Sela. Until October 14. Seamgallery, Moshav Megadim, Hof Hacarmel. Friday 11 a.m. - 2 p.m., Saturday 11 a.m. - 5 p.m.; weekdays, call (04) 857-5214
