The Lou Tate Gallery presents
Feb 2nd – Feb 28th
Artists’ Reception, Feb 10th, 1pm-4pm, free and open to the public.
This collection of tapestries spans the novice to experienced weaver. For some in this show, it was their first weaving, for others it has been a part of their life’s work. Tapestry Love includes the work of six artists: Ralph Calveard, Sally Moss, Naomi Penner, Michelle Amos, KiYatta Thomas, Chris Wilson, and demonstrates three generations passing down the tradition of weaving. Ralph Calveard and Sally Moss were students of Master Weaver, Lou Tate. Michelle Amos and Naomi Penner are students of Sally Moss, KiYatta Thomas and Chris Wilson are students of Michelle Amos. In this exhibition, each lends their artistic voice to the medium.
Vote for your favorite tapestry to be featured in the summer edition of the Kentucky Weaver.
*The work of Ralph Calveard represented in the show is a small selection preview of a large collection the Loomhouse acquired in 2017 with the help of Sally Moss and Sam Calveard. These tapestry pieces are being shown for the first time in the Lou Tate Gallery. The Loomhouse will be hosting a retrospective of Calveard’s work later this year.
