|Ms. Liz, whom I had previously met while carving pumpkins down at Iroquois Park for the Great Pumpkin Spectacular, gave some weaving instructions and then acted as our guide through the gallery|
A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to drive on a field trip to the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft. The 2nd and 3rd graders were there to see a weaving exhibit: "The New Art of the Loom."
I expected to enjoy the show, but I more than enjoyed it: I was very impressed. The first floor was regional weaving artists, and the second floor showed international works of the loom, and all of them were beautiful. Some were intriguing and abstract, some were strikingly representational; some were brilliant and shimmering, some were hauntingly toned-down. All of them were fun to look at.
Unfortunately, the show ends this Saturday, but we are going to try to get down there as a family before it closes for a final visit.
