Most years our Scandinavian Weavers Interest Group chooses a technique to study, but two years ago we chose to set our weaving goals to focus on a color at the heart of so many Scandinavian folk textiles — red.
Please come to see this warm and lively show at the Textile Center of Minnesota Community Gallery, May 12-June 25, 2016.
For our 2016 exhibit, members chose many paths in technique and materials. We didn’t exclude the rest of the color wheel completely; our only criteria was that red needs to be a significant element of the piece. Some pieces are mostly red, and others are grand experiments in fitting red into a pleasing combination.
Exhibitions Opening Reception: 6-8 pm, May 12, 2016.
This festive evening will celebrate new shows in all the galleries at the Textile Center of Minnesota. You won’t want to miss the other exhibits, either: On Borrowed Time: Postponing the Inevitable, Maggie Thompson (with an artist talk at 7pm); Hiaku Two Ways, Sandra Brick; and Joys & Tears in the Apron Strings, Yvonne Cory.
