Yesterday I stumbled on Elizabeth Buckley’s blog through a post on Facebook. She has written a thoughtful piece about the current tapestry exhibit at the Hunterdon Museum of Art, where she describes how much work has gone into this gathering of tapestries from so many respected artists. You can read it here. This photo is from the opening reception when Archie and Elizabeth were discussing her piece “Dialogues through the Veil.” Photo credit: Lisa Heilman Lomauro
Carol Russell curated this show, inviting 40 tapestry artists from 9 countries to participate. She worked with Schiffer Books to create a beautiful catalogue for the show, published as a hardback book. While I’ve been away this winter my mail has been forwarded to my son’s house, and that book is waiting for me there. It’s a five-hour drive to his house, but it will be at the top of my to-do list when I return home. I can’t wait to see this book!
And, of course, the show itself. I’ll be headed there in early May, right before it closes on May 10th. If you haven’t seen it, there is still time! If you cannot get there at least you can order this beautiful catalog.
