Tapestry on the Edge
The idea of “tapestry” has placed itself deep into the psyche of most Westerners as any fabric-based image that hangs on the wall. For those who create such objects, collect them, or simply admire the work and craft inherent in them, tapestries are wondrous things produced by many different cultures spanning both history and geography. The persistence of this kind of object hints at its romantic appeal. Read the accompanying essay Tapestry on the Edge to learn more about the work included in the exhibition.
