Check out this great article in The Guardian about the Cordis Trust prize for tapestry

Posted February 14th, 2015 by Administrator | Posted in General |

I love what writer Ian Rankin, who set up the Cordis prize for tapestry together with his wife, has to say about tapestry: “It has the depth of a painting, but tapestry can do what painting can’t. It’s 3D. You can rub your hands over it.” Read the whole article here and check out the fabulous tapestries in the competition!

Element 'Light'

The 6th and last Element ‘Light’ made its shining debut this Christmas at Grace Lutheran Church in Scarsdale. It will be on display through January 11, 2015.

Set-up day at the Architectural Digest Show!

Posted March 19th, 2014 by Administrator | Posted in Events and Exhibitions, General |

It was the usual chaos incorporated at the Piers, but since this is my 5th year, I know it will all miraculously come together in a really cool and dazzling show!

The MADE section got all new walls, they are 2 feet higher than previously, which obviously provides more space for artwork, but also makes the aisles feel a little ‘tunneled’. In particular since the aisles are also set narrower this year. It will be interesting to see how people will move through the exhibition with this new set-up.

Here are some quick shots of how the booth looks after the initial set-up, polish will be added tomorrow! I hope to see you at the show!

A new ‘Element’: Light

Posted January 21st, 2014 by Administrator | Posted in Events and Exhibitions, General, The Artists at Work |

After taking a bit of a break from weaving in 2013 and spending most of his time painting (much to our dismay!), Alibay has returned to the loom to work on a fifth element: Light. Below is a picture of the cartoon he painted, which will be his template on the loom. The tapestry should get ready in time for the 2014 Architectural Digest Home Design Show in March!

‘Fire’ tapestry on temporary display in Scarsdale

Posted June 8th, 2013 by Administrator | Posted in Events and Exhibitions, General |

For a limited time, ‘Fire’, one of the four free form tapestries of the ‘Elements’ series, is on display at Grace Lutheran Church, 59 Grand Boulevard in Scarsdale, NY 10583. In the Lutheran Church, fire symbolizes the Holy Spirit, and so with the start of Pentecost, ‘Fire’ joined the permanent tapestry ‘John 15:5’ in the Sanctuary of this beautiful modern church. If you want to visit, Sunday Services take place at 10.00am.

Favorite new artist find for this show

Posted March 24th, 2013 by Administrator | Posted in Artist Picks, Events and Exhibitions, General, Resources |

Here is my favorite new artist find for this show: sculptor Dick Shanley (www.dickshanley.com). Such beautiful happy colorful pieces, smooth and elegant, really cool. And of course my two favorite wood workers are back, Nico Yektai (www.nicoyektai.com), and Earl Nesbitt (www.earlnesbitt.com). Nico brought some incredible new pieces, in particular a long mirror with 3 irregular drawers – it’s a sculpture as much as furniture.
