TWiNE 2008: A Contemporary Look at Tapestry

The Tapestry Weavers in New England exhibit opened on Friday, September 5, at the Rivertree Center for the Arts in Kennebunk, Maine.

Having been a juror, it was really exciting to see that all the tapestries ended up somehow on the walls, and in wonderful groupings.

I know that Kevin from Rivertree, and the TWiNE hanging committee, Anne, Bonnie, Dolores and Mary worked very hard to get this show hung, and it turned out great!

Of course I think it looks fabulous, but I’m not exactly objective.
I’ve had some really positive comments from other people who’ve seen the show and found it inspirational.
After I finally arrived (see previous post about car), I did manage to get started weaving on the Mirrix which Bonnie had brought all warped up and ready to go, so we can demonstrate tapestry weaving.
There will be a gallery talk and tapestry demonstration on September 20, 1-3pm.
