I was just looking at the Summer Calendar for the Textile Museum in Washington, DC, and it is filled with interesting exhibits and events for the Textile Artist. In particular is ” The World of Color in Contemporary Art Quilts” on Saturday July 24th. The Summer Workshop Series has some great classes including silk painting and screening.
Unfortunately, when I head in that direction this time of year, it is usually to the shores of the Chesapeake but my visits to the Museum is always a wonderful surprise. It is very small but full of impact. It’s in the Embasy District and the architecture in the area is amazing.
If you’re not headed in that direction, check out the web-site. It is full of great information and eye candy.
