The Bridge An exhibiton of weavings is on now at the Raw Meet gallery....I'll talk to the organizer of Sunrise Twills With titles by world reknowed textile artist Ted Hallman. Apr 16, 2012 | 6:15There's a new exhibit at the Raw Meet gallery in Windsor.
Sunrise Twills with Titles is a series of weavings by textile artist Ted Hallman.
The works were inspired by music...specifically the Starscape Singers and the titles were given to the pieces by Kenneth G. Mills.
This exhibtion initially opened at the Royal Ontario Museum and has since travelled across Canada and the U.S.
Later this month, Ted Hallman will be in Windsor to talk about the works...that's happening at the Assumption chapel but right now the wortks are on display at the Raw Meet Gallery for the next two weeks.
I dropped by the opening last week and spoke with David Nash...the organizer of the exhibit.
I began by asking him what makes Ted Hallmans' weavings so unique.

The Bridge An exhibition of weavings by renowned weaver Ted Hallman is on display at Assumption University Chapel. Apr 20, 2012 | 6:15For the past week a collection of weavings by renowned textile artist Ted Hallman has been hanging at the Raw Meet Gallery on Monmouth road in Windsor.
Tomorrow, Sunrise Twills moves to Assumption University Chapel where the artist himself will be on hand for a lecture about his work this Sunday afternoon.
Ted studied textiles at Cranbrook in Michigan and over the years these works have been exhibited in major museums across North America including the Royal Ontario Museum.
The weavings on display in Windsor were created some thirty years ago and they were inspired by the choral music of the Star Scape Singers.
I met with Ted earlier today and began by asking him how long it had been since he had seen these works all together again.
