The Baltimore Museum of Art’s (BMA) TEXTILE GALLERY returns with Early American Embroideries, November 23, 2014 – May 2015. In conjunction with the grand opening of the renovated American Wing, the BMA presents Lessons Learned: American Schoolgirl Embroideries. The exhibition features more than 20 samplers and silk embroideries made by American girls who attended schools in Maryland and other states along the East Coast during the 18th and 19th centuries. From opulent to understated, the works provide a fascinating glimpse into early American life.
The newly renovated Jean and Allan Berman Textile Gallery highlights works from the BMA’s collection of more than 5,000 textiles spanning nearly 2,000 years. Admission to the BMA is free. For general Museum information, call 443-573-1700 or visit artbma.org.
The Loudoun Sampler Guild will be visiting this exhibition on Saturday, February 28. See the January newsletter for details. We have room for a few more participants.
