Las Aranas Spinners and Weavers Guild from Albuquerque and Central New Mexico and Las Tejedoras Fiber Arts Guild from Los Alamos, Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico, Tapestry Show featuring the Alphabet Soup Exhibit begins 10 a.m. Friday at the Fuller Lodge Art Center Portal Gallery. The exhibit runs through March 15.
The tapestry show features the Alphabet Soup Exhibit, that consists of 31 small tapestries representing letters of the alphabet and numbers zero through four.
The display came out of a joint meeting of the two guild tapestry groups when they decided to collaborate on a project.
Twenty-nine weavers decided to participate in this project. Each weaver was assigned a letter or number and created a representational, metaphorical or abstract design using a color scheme of the weaver’s choosing. The letter or number that is the theme of the piece can be obvious or hidden within the tapestry.
Additional tapestries from the two tapestry groups will also be shown as part of the exhibit. These tapestries vary in size, feature a variety of techniques and diverse subject matter.
Both Las Aranas and Las Tejedoras Guilds were founded in the early 1970s. These guilds provide educational experiences to their members and participate in projects that increase awareness of the fiber arts.
