Textiles Rule in Fall 2008!
Aug '08
It's the largest city-wide display of textiles and fiber arts in Honolulu's history.

From Hawaiian quilts and kapa to new works by leading contemporary fiber artists to Indonesian and Cambodian textiles and Japanese kimono Honolulu arts organizations are reaching deep into their textile closets and mounting fabulous textile exhibitions for the 11th Biennial Textile Society of America Symposium being held in Hawaii, September 24 through 27, 2008 at the Sheraton Waikiki Hotel.

Twenty-four exhibitions at a host of museums, galleries, and other city venues will be featuring extraordinary and unusual, contemporary and traditional textiles and fiber arts concurrently with the September 2008 symposium, which expects to draw an international crowd of textile curators, scholars, dealers, artists, experts, and students.

Textiles as Cultural Expressions is the over-riding theme for this major international arts event and marketplace 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.

The conference and Textile Marketplace are open to the public. All exhibitions will also be open to the public with admission fees as applicable for respective organizations.

The TSA events happily coincide with Smithsonian Magazine's Museum Day promotion on September 27, 2008. Many museum venues featuring TSA-related exhibitions are participating in the nation-wide event and will be offering free admission with the Museum Day Admission Card.
