Weaving Re Imagined Invitational Exhibition

May 22  –  July 18, 2021

Special Invitational Exhibition at the New Hope Arts Center

 

Weaving Re-Imagined –

At the Intersection of Tradition and Creativity

 

The focus of this group exhibition is to examine a variety of approaches to the traditional techniques of weaving, its applications, and reinvention among contemporary artists.

 

Weaving remains one of the “slow” art forms; art made by hand, typically in isolation, and often in a state of relative meditation. It is a vital part of every culture. It tells a story. It evokes many senses. It reaches out to us with more questions then answers. The show presents an opportunity to ponder why are we drown to this art form, always curious as to how these pieces are made, what is it about weaving that compels the weavers to spend countless hours at the loom creating and expressing their visions?

 

This collection of works invites the viewer to explore, feel and related to the process of creation even if the technique remains beyond comprehension to most. From the flat tapestries to three-dimensional work, one will enjoy the textures and complexity of this medium, as well as richness and the imagination of these masters of their craft.

 

 

Weaving Re-Imagined was curated by tapestry artist Rita Romanova Gekht, founder and owner of Rita’s Dream Weaving Studio in Lambertville, New Jersey.

 

Further information is available on all the artists included in the exhibition.
