Several photographs will also be included featuring images of a Tongan woman painting ngatu; a Fijian wedding couple in masi; tapa worn by dancing men of Papau New Guinea; and tapa from Pitcairn. The exhibition is presented as a community service and is free of charge.

The major international textile arts event is being coordinated by Tom Klobe, Director Emeritus of the University of Hawaii Art Gallery; and Reiko Brandon, renowned fiber artist and former Curator of Textiles at the Honolulu Academy of Arts, with support from the Textile Society of America Board of Directors. The conference is open to the public with prior registration. You need not be a member of TSA to attend the Symposium.
