So Many Amazing Tapestries!

I was thrilled to learn that the upcoming ATB8 (American Tapestry Biennial 8) will have three venues throughout the US.  I don’t know what they are, but I heard from a good source that one will likely be Lowell, Massachusetts which will mean I can see all these amazing tapestries for real!

I have just finished proofreading the catalog for ATB8 and am astounded by the works!  Four members of the Wednesday Group are in this exhibition, as well as other artists whose works I love! Then there are works from artists I don’t yet know! The catalog is a glorious feast for the eyes, and I’m so glad to have worked on it in the tiniest way.  I cannot imagine what it will be like to see all these pieces hanging together in one gallery space. 

Sixty-four pieces, in fact. Sorry to write about this without being able to show photos…. Chris.forsythia.4.10

Any idea when?

This is conjecture, but I think the first venue will be in or near Albuquerque, NM, to coincide with Convergence. So the Lowell dates would be sometime after that...
I'll certainly post when I know! And others will be posting as well!
