Lecture by Dirk Holger About the Art of Tapestry

Thursday, March 13, 2014 at 6:00pm

The lecture will coincide with an art exhibition “The New Art of the Loom: Contemporary International Tapestries,” featuring a traveling showcase with 24 artists from 16 countries.

“The hand woven and not painted images in this exhibition combine the ancient craft of hand weaving with contemporary art and design,” said Holger. “In tapestry, the craft is the art!”

Holger’s book “To Weave or Not to Weave: A Basic Tapestry Book for the Lay Person,” which gives an overview of style development in tapestry art through 2,000 years, will be available at the exhibition venue.
