NYTM to celebrate textile creativity and promote textile awareness

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2016-08-23 15:00:00 – New York

Cooperative showroom and design consultancy colony to celebrate New York Textile Month, a month long city wide festival designed to celebrate textile creativity and promote textile awareness with three consecutive exhibits over the span of September 2016, each one showcasing the vastly impressive catalogs of two Colony Co-op members — Hiroko Takeda and Meg Callahan — and Colony Consult collaborator, FEBRIK.

Dutch textile company FEBRIK will showcase a colorful installation at Colony's 324 Canal Street location. Highlighting the vibrant spectrum of FEBRIK's collection of knitted upholstery textiles, a closing event will revolve around FEBRIK colors with playfully colorful cocktails served.

Meg Callahan, recently named one of Forbes' 30 under 30 for art and design, is known for her graphically impactful quilts. Callahan's stunning pieces use traditional techniques to create inspiring contemporary designs. See the largest collection of Meg Callahan quilts ever to be shown in one place during this one week exhibit.

Hiroko Takeda is a textile artist from Japan whose work has been commissioned and has appeared in numerous venues worldwide. In her painterly, sculptural and architectonic idiom of weaving, she expresses deep sensitivities and incongruous harmonies. Celebrate and cap off New York Textile Month with this exhibition of her incomparable work.

To investigate and celebrate the survival of the different textile components and expression, NYTM scripts all events, demonstrations and exhibitions concerning cloth, helping the general public to better comprehend and embrace the textiles of life.
