Spring brings us beautiful flowering bulbs and trees, but it also brings us the wonderful colors and shapes of clouds, showers and rainbows.
Here in Alexandria, Virginia, we are surrounded by beautiful and exciting buildings, bridges, parks, and monuments. Both our local and worldwide architecture serve as inspiration for the pieces in this show.
Repeated patterns, repeated themes, repeated textures and repeated colors all lead to interesting and exciting pieces.
Ikat weaving, Batik, Sashiko embroidery, Shibori dyeing, hand stamping, and a myriad of other Eastern techniques and clothing styles are integrated with Western designs and techniques. Non-themed work will also be exhibited. (Image: detail of jacket, Gretchen Klimoski)
