American Tapestry Biennial 13

JANUARY 27th – MARCH 27th

Highfield Hall & Gardens is a 2021 venue for the American Tapestry Alliance 13th Biennial. This international juried exhibition brings the finest contemporary tapestry weaving to our New England audience.

The Alliance works to foster awareness and appreciation for tapestries of superior quality designed and woven by individual artists and educate the public about the history and techniques of tapestry weaving.

Juror, Nick DeFord from Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts, selected thirty-seven tapestries from nearly two hundred entries, the final selection is representative of artists from ten countries. The exhibition will take place in galleries on both floors of the house, enhancing an intimate, residential-style installation. An accompanying exhibition catalog will be available for purchase.  Come see this winter exhibition before it travels to the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles!
