How to Make a Tapestry in the Twenty-First Century

Friday, Sept. 11 / Noon

Donald and Era Farnsworth, the duo behind the fine art print studio Magnolia Editions of Oakland, Calif., discuss the process and production of the contemporary tapestries made by artist Chuck Close and featured in the exhibit Faces: Chuck Close and Contemporary Portraiture.

Magnolia Editions has worked closely with a number of artists to produce works which have been exhibited in museums worldwide, including the Whitney Museum of American Art and the White Cube Gallery in London. This half-hour dialogue allows guests to experience an informal and intimate introduction to the duo’s unorthodox process of weaving.

Cost: $5/$4 for museum members. The Art Bite series is supported, in part, by the Gabelli Foundation.
