See the work of of Rowen Schussheim-Anderson at American Tapestry Biennial, an exhibition including 36 tapestries, featuring artists from eight countries. The works selected for the exhibition high light the variety of artistic expression practiced today in the medium of hand woven tapestry. The pieces range from the subtle, visually complex, and even break new grounds in shape and surface texture. Tapestry’s rich history and it’s unique ability to render images in the tactile medium of the cloth offer contemporary artists a powerful vehicle for expressing both aesthetic and conceptual concerns.

January 20th – April 16th, 2017 at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles, 520 S. First Street San Jose, CA 95113.
