And the latest item onto the parcel merry-go-round is Illuminations, this silk evening wrap which I wove last spring.


I’m delighted to report that this piece was accepted for Complexity, a show organised by Complex Weavers. As you can see from the flyer below, Complexity will be at the University of Nebraska in April-May and Illuminations is now on her merry way to Lincoln.

Incidentally, I love the tagline for the Robert Hillestad Textiles Gallery. Let’s all pause for a moment to relish the phrase ‘Devoted to the Exhibition of Textiles.’

After that the exhibition moves to Tacoma, WA to coincide with Complex Weavers Seminars and thence to Providence, RI to coincide with Convergence. Alas, I am going to none of these events, so I am glad to be sending this wrap as my avatar. In fact, I have just heard that Firth of Tay has been accepted for Ebb and Flow, the HGA’s juried yardage exhibition, so I will be doubly represented in Providence. And I will have the joy of doing double battle with the form-filling… Complexity in weaving is a thing I can handle reasonably well; complexity in customs documentation not so much.
