Tomorrow I am going up to Chicago to attend the re-opening of the Department of Textiles at the Art Institute. The department has been closed for five years to repair structural problems. There are two exhibitions featured in the re-opening: June Wayne’s Narrative Tapestries, and Contemporary Fiber Art: A selection from the Permanent Collection. The latter exhibition includes my Grey Stones weaving, which AIC acquired two years ago. I am so honored to be included in this happy show, and was delighted to learn that Grey Stones is pictured in the current AIC magazine article about the exhibition.
