American Tapestry Biennial 4 in Vancouver

By Barbara Heller and Anne Clark

ATB 4 exhibition at the Richmond Art Gallery exceeded all expectations.The gallery was pleased by the high attendance and most of the people who signed the visitor's book wrote in superlatives. Here is a sampling of some of the comments:

“What a treat to see the high level of international tapestry, and the personal/cultural variations in interpretation of this ancient art.”

“Each piece is more beautiful than the last. I have a renewed  appreciation for tapestry.”

“Great craftsmanship and maintaining worthwhile traditions with the addition of freedom of expression in colour and design.”

“Good range of contrasts-both visually and technically.”

“It was worth coming from New Zealand just to see this amazing display.”

“Best show at Convergence.”

Convergence provided the opportunity for tapestry weavers to meet old and new colleagues, to participate in workshops and seminars and to marvel at the diversity of tapestries being created today.
