Timeless Weft: Ancient Tapestries and the Art of Louise B. Wheatley
From February 1, 2017 — July 30, 2017
This intimate exhibition celebrates the 40-year career of Maryland artist Louise B. Wheatley. Internalizing the lessons of ancient masters, Wheatley creates art that is unmistakably a reflection of her own unique vision and her self-imposed sense of technical perfection.

Some of Wheatley’s works recall the composition and specific methods of Coptic textiles, including intricate and technically difficult border designs, the use of slanted wefts, and flying needle techniques. Less directly, Wheatley emulates their brilliant colors, connection to nature, celebration of earth’s fertility, and exploration of philosophical and religious thought.

The BMA is closed every Monday and Tuesday.
