Los Alamos resident wins Excellence in Tapestry award

-A A +A

The American Tapestry Alliance announced that Evelyn Campbell from Los Alamos, has been given the ATA Award for Excellence in Tapestry for her piece, “Sandhill Cranes over Pajarito Acres.”
The art was displayed at the “Celebration of Fiber” sponsored by Intermountain Weavers Conference last month at Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colo. Campbell’s tapestry measures 28 inches in height by 22 inches wide and is made from hand-dyed wool weft and cotton warp.  
“Sandhill Cranes over Pajarito Acres” was inspired by a photograph taken by T.K. Thompson of cranes flying over my home in the Fall toward their wintering ground at the Bosque near Socorro,” Campbell said. “Our Las Tejedoras tapestry group challenged each of us to weave a tapestry illustrating ‘passages.’ Watching the sandhill cranes flying over Pajarito Acres and listening to them every Spring and Fall has been a passage that has been part of my life for 47 years.”
“The decision to learn to be a weaver in my retirement years was because the Española Valley Fiber Arts Center in Española, made it easy to take all sorts of classes over the last 18 years,” she said.
