Brennan & Glueck featured in NYC panel at SOFA

April 1, 2011

Legendary Scottish weaver Archie Brennan and New York Times writer Grace Glueck will join author Ann Hedlund to discuss her new book, GLORIA F. ROSS & MODERN TAPESTRY, on Friday, April 15, 2011, from 3:00 to 4:30 pm in New York City. Art historian Derek Ostergard will moderate (or better yet, “enliven”) the discussion.

The SOFA art expo (Sculpture Objects & Functional Art) will host this illustrated panel discussion, “TAPESTRY BECOMES MODERN ART,” at the Park Avenue Armory’s splendid Tiffany Room in Manhattan. Join us to explore questions like “Why make tapestries in the first place?” –“What goes into designing and making an original tapestry?”–“When are tapestries considered works of art (versus reproductions)?” — “How do modern tapestries fit into the contemporary art world?”
