Portland-based designer-craftsman Laurie Herrick created widely recognized weavings from the 1940s until her death in 1995. This retrospective exhibition explores weaving as a living craft. Selected patterns by Herrick will be available on the web for weavers worldwide to interpret and share via Flickr. Five contemporary artists will participate in Museum residencies, creating personal responses to Herrickā€™s patterns and adding to this traveling exhibition.

Presenting Sponsors: Western States Arts Federation, National Endowment for the Arts and The Ford Family Foundation

Additional exhibition support: Sue Horn-Caskey & Rick Caskey, Larry & Dorie Vollum, Steve & Tisha Vollum, The Collins Foundation, Meyer Memorial Trust, Oregon Cultural Trust, The Standard, HW Irwin and DCH Irwin Foundation, The Jackson Foundation, Regional Arts & Culture Council and Wessinger Foundation.
