The High-Fiber Arts Center



To the editors:

Holly Greenhagen's coverage of "Hats, Helmets, Headgear" in the November 17 issue of the Reader was fine exposure of a rare exhibit. The Textile Arts Centre (TAC) however is not a wearable art gallery.

The TAC is a not for profit art institution which promotes and presents fiber art. The TAC offers classes such as weaving, surface design, and an artist series of fiber related workshops. The lecture series presents a historical and ethnographic dimension of textiles. The gallery features seven fiber shows annually; two national competitions, two invitational, one ethnic, a faculty show and one traveling show.

TAC is unique in the Mid-west as the only fiber school/gallery exclusively promoting textile art.

Thank you for the interest taken in the Textile Arts Centre. It's always an opportunity to present fiber art to a wider audience.
