The Fabric of life | The Harmony Weavers Guild, September 30, 2017 – January 14, 2018

Founded in 1971, the Harmony Weavers Guild is dedicated to the making of cloth—a process involving time-consuming techniques. Created by hand, the works of art highlight attention to design and detail and to richness of color and of textures. Such features invite the viewer to think about the artist’s process and to appreciate the textiles that are so much a part of everyday lives. The exhibition includes fabrics designed for public spaces, for wearable art, and for the home.

For an in-depth look at the background of the pieces on display, the artists who created them and the techniques and insights they used, browse through our Look Book.
