(Falmouth, Massachusetts): Highfield Hall & Gardens is pleased to announce ATB13, the 13th Biennial exhibition Organized by the American Tapestry Alliance featuring the finest examples of contemporary tapestry weaving from around the world. Highfield Hall’s debut installation of the prestigious Biennial offers southern New England its first look at this international exhibition. Juror Nick Deford, Program Director at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts chose 37 tapestries among 189 entries representing ten countries, culminating in a range of pictorial possibilities using the tapestry technique, from physically large to intimately small, from abstract to representational. The installation is paired with text and diagrams of tapestry techniques, and Highfield Hall will produce programming aligned with historical and contemporary tapestry weaving. American Tapestry Alliance co-chairs Ama Wertz and David Heustess navigated through myriad COVID-19 restrictions with museum and gallery closures, postponing and rescheduling the Biennial until it could be presented safely. The exhibition will travel to its second venue and open in July at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles.
