SAORI: Weaving

Following a very successful show in October 2014, the woman weavers from TSE, Inc. return for an even larger and more compelling exhibition of colorful and unpredictable textiles done under the watchful and generous eye of master weaver/teacher Chiaki O'Brien.

Work from the 2014 show sold out, which suggests the level of excitement these weavers create with their art. Expect this new show to be even more entrancing.

Opening Reception - Wednesday, September 2nd from 5pm to 8pm

Community Weaving Workshop - Tuesday, September 22nd from 10am to noon. (Registration required)

Like last year's SAORI Weaving show, this one too was replete with "kodak moments." And unlike the first show, this year The Ladies viewed themselves as artists and took full responsibility for deciding where each of the works would be hung. During the opening, at the open house for TSE staff, and especially during the community workshop, The Ladies were at their best talking with visitors about their work, about their weaving process.

All in all, a testament to the power of art to be a bridge from present circumstances to more empowered futures.

And also like last year, gallery visitors were quite taken with the vibrant colors, the surprising patterns and the happy accidents of the process.
