Talk: Friday, November 5 from 6pm to 7:30pm
Heritage, innovation and opportunity collide in a stunning Turkish-Armenian collaboration featured in Amy Kaslow Gallery’s current exhibition Native Hands: Folk Art is Fine Art. Join the Gallery on Friday, November 5th at 6pm for conversation about art and revival. Zehra Çetinkaya is coming from Istanbul, Turkey’s Mehmet Çetinkaya Gallery, where her family creates some of the world’s finest textiles. With silk from Bursa, dyes from plants, seeds, pits, and insects, and old compositions from the Caucasus, they’ve revived ancient designs with needlework not seen in centuries and sustainable income for the masterful women stitching them. See the results in the gallery: strikingly modern pieces adapted from antiquities, and saturated in organic color. Mehmet Çetinkaya Gallery’s works will be on view in Native Hands: Folk Art is Fine Art through November 28.
