The Artist's Perspective: Timeless Weft: The Art of Louise B. Wheatley
May 13 · 2:00pm – 4:00pm
Louise Wheatley will give an informal talk focusing on the inspirational role that Coptic textiles have played in her work and the challenges and rewards of the timeless art of tapestry-weaving. This largely self-taught artist will discuss her decades of study involving the growing, processing, dyeing, and weaving of numerous fibers, and the material qualities of textiles that make it a unique medium for creative expression. A hands-on examination of fibers, tools, and hand-woven cloth will be included in this intimate look into Wheatley’s artistic process.
