There are two exhibits of Tapestry Weaving in Deerfield MA right now.
I was out that way today and stopped in at the DeerfieldArtsBank exhibit and talked to a few of the weavers. They said the one at Deerfield Acadamy is well worth seeing. Links for both exhibits are below.
I am definitely going to head out there and wondered if anyone was interested in going out there with me?
I live west of the FiberLoft, so we would meet in the Fitchburg area and head out from there. It’s about one hour from Fitchburg to Deerfield. There is a large shopping center right off rte 2 in Fitchburg that allows commuter parking –
If we go next week on Thursday or Friday, we could see both exhibits. If we did not go until a day during the two weeks following that, we would only see the one at Deerfield Acadamy. The “Weaving up & Down” is the one I saw today and the one that ends April 12. Beautiful pieces by local weavers – 2 or 3 pieces from each of the 13 weavers.
If your interested, let me know when would be good. We could even manage to get in a visit to a local fiber shop and Webs if you wanted. They are all within a few minutes of each other out there.
