Join Local Cloth for a private tour at Black Mountain College! 

Featured works include objects from the BMCM+AC’s permanent collection, as well as loans from institutional and private collections, including the families of BMC weavers. BMC’s weaving program was started in 1934 by Anni Albers and lasted until the College closed in 1956. Many of the objects shown have either never been publicly exhibited, or never been shown in the context of BMC. The exhibition also features work by selected contemporary artists whose work connects to the legacies of the BMC weavers: Kay Sekimachi, Jen Bervin, Porfirio Gutiérrez, Susie Taylor, and Bana Haffar.

This is an extraordinary exhibit, and an important part of WNC's textile history. We will have a guided tour with time to browse both the collection and extensive library on your own. Don't miss this one!

Charge is $5 for Local Cloth members, $10 for non-members.

For those who would like to carpool to this event, please meet at Local Cloth at 3pm. Otherwise, park downtown and meet us right before 3:30pm.
