"In My Nature: How I Work" Illustrated Talk by Helena Hernmarck & Artist Reception

Thursday, July 26, 2012 - 7:00pm

Join our era's legendary trompe-l'oeil weaver, Helena Hernmarck, for her presentation “In My Nature: How I Work,” followed by a reception in her honor. Hernmarck’s presentation will illustrate how some of the works on display in the In Our Nature: The Tapestries of Helena Hernmarck exhibition at ASI came about. In the beginning stages of her career, Hernmarck wanted to work big, feeling that the medium called for size. She will discuss her unique weaving technique, and how she is able to make the colors in her large tapestries glow in competition with stained glass.

Following the talk, ASI will host a reception in honor of Hernmarck. Hors d’oeuvres will be served, and there will be a cash bar. The event costs $12 for ASI members, $15 for nonmembers. Reservations are required; please call 612-871-4907 to sign up.
