Woven Art 2014

An exhibition by members of the British Tapestry Group held at K&S London & Harrogate 2014.

The aims of the exhibition are:

To promote tapestry weaving to a wider audience.
Educate about techniques and the wide variety of styles, shapes and sizes that are possible.

The selection of the work to be shown was undertaken by our Curator, Hillu Liebelt - a renowned weaver in her own right. Commenting on the selection, Hillu stated:

It has been a difficult task to select among such a good and varied choice, knowing that the space we shall have in the stands is rather limited. I have tried to gather together a selection of different techniques, materials, styles and sizes and have managed to find a space for 44 pieces (of 98) by 33 (of 46) weavers.

It has been both enjoyable and a privilege, as well as a huge responsibility, to select and arrange the work for this exhibition. Today woven tapestries are rightly regarded as a part of the fine art world, and this exhibition will serve to reinforce this. Hillu Liebelt
