Gallery Walks - Each year we present significant collections of work featuring noteworthy artists – both contemporary and historic. These collections offer interesting topics, remarkable techniques, geographic influences, and fascinating stories. Gallery Walks are a rare opportunity to see the exhibits through the eyes of the designer, creator, curator, authority, or descendant. Gallery Walks are also an exceptional learning tool -- learn how to take the aspects that you admire and apply them to your own work. Or if you are a collector, learn more about the rugs you are collecting.

This presentation will take place in the exhibit hall, so that the speakers can refer to individual rugs, discuss interesting details and reveal little known facts. At the end of the Gallery Walk, the speakers will be happy to answer your questions -- so come prepared. Seating will “not” be provided for the Gallery Walk.

For more information on Exhibits and Speakers, please see the Exhibit page. For classes relevant to these exhibits, please see our Retreat and Workshop pages.
