Description

Murray Gibson will be discussing the evolution of his tapestry practice over a forty-year timespan with a focus on specific experiences that took him along new pathways of tapestry exploration. These artistic studio-based journeys have also taken him on actual journeys: the experiences of living in other urban and rural environments have influenced his tapestry work and personal reflection.

The presentation will be approximately an hour long and followed by a 30-minute Q&A. Registered individuals will receive a zoom link. Be sure your email address is entered correctly when registering. A recording of the presentation will be available until July 22, 2024.
