The exhibit consists of both national and international leading artists of innovative textile design, including a variety of computer designed textile applications.
What happens when the creative mind and the skilled hand are provided ongoing access to the computer-aided, industrial weaving machine? Textile design is a specialized field that involves several sectors - fashion, interior decoration, the production of expressive works, sculptures, and handcrafted items. This traveling exhibition, curated by the Center for Craft, Creativity and Design in Hendersonville, NC, features designs that represent five 21st Century design growth areas of creative/innovative textiles using computerized Jacquard looms.
