When I was at the Heard Museum weekend before last, there was another exhibit in a different gallery that really appealed to me. It was a collection of 46 Navajo rugs and textiles that are all part of the Heard collection displayed all together in one room. I was amazed and stunned at the beauty in that room.
The first one above is by Nellie Curley and is called "Generation of Weavers" in tribute to the generations of weavers who have passed down their weaving skills to the next generation.
To the left is a pictorial textile by Louise Y Nez. In the two upper corners are depictions of formations in Monument Valley. In the lower corners are depictions of Cathedral Rock in Sedona and Ship Rock in New Mexico.
The one above is by Alisa Ann Peacock and it's called "Rebirth". Alisa is a 4th generation weaver.
To the right are two more pictorial textiles from weaver Michele Laughing-Reeves. The top one is called "Canyonland Flight" and the one below is "Spider Rock". Michele was inspired by the red rocks and canyons of Southern Colorado.
I'll show you a few more tomorrow including two of my favorites.
