Howdy! I just got back from Texas. Here are some TEXtiles from that great state.
These are from the Rockefeller collection of Latin American Art at the San Antonio Museum of Art.
A very visible bird…
..and careful embroideries.
Joe and I were visiting our friend Deborah Mersky.
Her work is pattern-ful and soulful.
Here is a silver leafed window in her house, and a silver leafed wall.
This is a public art piece that Deborah did in downtown Austin.
See more by clicking this link to Deborah’s website.
Deborah’s home is rich in textiles. In her house you can see stripes and zigzags, pillows and tablecloths, curtains and rugs.
Deborah collects bateas: Mexican wooden platters. They aren’t textiles but they might inspire textilists (Textilians?).
The last stop in our Texas tour was Austin. Joe, Deborah and I had a show of small works at Yard Dog Art. You can see it on-line here.
We stayed at the Hotel San Jose. Serendipitous serape sightings!
I leave you with this thought from the parking lot at the San Antonio Museum of Art.
