January 21, 2020

Julia and Marty Ortman will present a program on their residency in Egypt in 2000 where they lived on the grounds of the Wissa Wasef Art Centre near the Pyramids of Giza for three and a half years. They will talk about the art centre and show us tapestry work that they purchased there. This will be a fascinating inside look at the making of these tapestries. Visit this link to see a few photos from their presentation and find links to short videos of the dyeing and weaving processes at the Wissa Wasef Art Centre.
