Textiles, Art History, Gardens, and a Little Mental Traveling with Courtney Barnes 2006-2016


So Happy Together

Today's mash-up includes a new piece, a relatively recent fabric design, and a vintage (or possibly antique) textile from San Francisco's Asian museum.

We've got John Robshaw's ever-versatile handprinted linen, Lanka Oyster, Anthro's just-out-for-spring striped linen pillow in whisper soft pink, and a deeper-than-deep Thai silk ikat that could be circa 1900 or later 20th century. The latter is not currently part of a special exhibition but there are a few textiles to be spied in the old Indian paintings included in Yoga: The Art of Transformation. (Many look a bit like fore bearers of Lanka.) This traveling show is the first major exhibition to delve into yoga, specifically from a visual perspective. Yoga will be on view through May 25.
