Tapestries coming to Jane Kahan Gallery

GLORIA F. ROSS: REBIRTH OF MODERN TAPESTRY will run at Jane Kahan Fine Art, 330 East 59th St., from 15 February through 25 March 2011. Special hours for this show are Tuesday through Friday 10 am – 5 pm. Jane Kahan Fine Art is otherwise open by appointment only. The main Jane Kahan Gallery is located at 922 Madison Avenue (73rd Street).

The Jane Kahan Gallery will open its new exhibition space with a show devoted to a selection of rare tapestries by American artists, edited by Gloria F. Ross. Many of these tapestries have been included in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and others. The show celebrates the publication of Gloria F. Ross and Modern Tapestry, by textile scholar Ann Lane Hedlund (Yale University Press). To view the gallery announcement, click HERE.

Gloria F. Ross’s career stretched from the 1970s to the 1990s, during which time she brought together the top weavers in the world with American artists to reinvent the centuries-old art of tapestry in a contemporary form. Weavers represented in the Jane Kahan Show are the Dovecot Studios of Scotland; Ateliers Pinton et Picaud and Micheline Henry of France; and Navajo weavers of the American Southwest. Artists/designers include Milton Avery, Romare Bearden, Stuart Davis, Jean Dubuffet, Helen Frankenthaler, P:aul Jenkins, Louise Nevelson, Kenneth Noland, Frank Stella, Ernie Trova, and Jack Youngerman.

A vernissage for the show and reception for Dr. Hedlund will take place February 11, 2011 from 4:00 – 8:00 pm, during which the author will be glad to sign copies of her book. The exhibition continues through March 25, 2011.
