Nationally and internationally acclaimed contemporary tapestry artist, Jon Eric Riis “has taken the ancient craft of hand-woven tapestry to the level of important contemporary fine art.” His tapestries often contain “highly critical social and cultural ideas.” He “creates extraordinary works of woven silk and metallic thread with textured undulating surfaces of hand-stitched pearls, coral and glass beads.”
Just hours back from his travels to India, Jon will share with TASA his current studio projects, his favorite Chinese textiles, and textiles from many other cultures around the world. Jon’s pieces have been collected over a period of 50 years. He will have textiles available for sale. http://www.jonericriis-studio.com
