Tapestry Weavers South (TWS) is a southeastern, regional organization, begun in 1996 in Dahlonega, Georgia with 18 weavers. Their dual purpose is to encourage and promote tapestry among its members, and to educate the public about tapestry as an art form. The membership, now of approximately 40 weavers, extends geographically over all the southeastern sates; and from which comes a diversity of contemporary hand woven tapestries, both abstract and figurative in design. This exhibition will highlight tapestries of traditional designs to innovative abstract forms to realistic imagery, all through the hands of master tapestry artist.
Tapestry Weaving itself is one of the oldest forms of woven textiles and the principal way of creating a picture through weaving. The exhibit will be on display May 3rd through July 9,2016 in the Wellborn Gallery located at the Yadkin Cultural Arts Center in Yadkinville, North Carolina.
