Cloth, baskets, containers, nets, fences, dwellings, even paper- all originated from fiber and plants. Human ingenuity has made the manipulation of plant materials even more beautiful. From May 17 to August 28, 2016, the Sturt Haaga Gallery at Descanso Gardens will present Woven, an exhibition centered on the art of weaving.
The gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays; closed Mondays. Free with admission.
Woven is funded in part by Heather and Paul Haaga and the Pasadena Art Alliance. Additional support for Sturt Haaga Gallery exhibitions is provided by Wells Fargo and Richard Carlson and Erin Maclean Culley.
