Intertwined: Regional Textile TraditionsSeptember 06, 2018 - July 07, 2019
Price-Strongwell Cultural Heritage Galleries
This exhibition, organized by The William King Museum of Art, explores the realities of nineteenth-century home textile production in the region surrounding Abingdon, VA. These textiles were planned, produced, and passed down through families as important heirlooms. Adept skill in the processes of weaving, quilting, and sewing is evident in the complex designs of this regions’ textiles. Focusing on these innovative qualities reframes home textile production as an intentional, design-driven process rather than a utilitarian chore.
