Spring 2020

Spring is on the horizon!  Two little trips, one cross-country skiing in the Gaspe Peninsula, Quebec for 3 days and I hope to make it to New York this spring to see the exhibition,Taking Thread for a Walk, at MOMA.  Anni Albers wrote in 1965, “Just as it is possible to go from any place to any other, so also, starting from a defined and specialized field, can one arrive at a realization of ever-extending relationships . . . traced back to the event of a thread.”

After reading about this exhibit I listened to the interview with musician Roseanne Cash and interviewer Natasha Giliberti.  https://www.moma.org/magazine/articles/212

You might want to listen to the interview and then see the playlist, "Love the Thread", that Roseanne Cash compiled for this
exhibiton.  Just scroll down that same page.  Roseanne sees many parallels among music and art and weaving and talks about the choices she made for this playlist.

One of the songs on the playlist is "A Feather's Not a Bird", has an appeal to me, from Roseanne Cash's album, "The River and the Thread".
Although I don't go to many musical concerts my daughter and I did go to hear Roseanne Cash in a venue outside Toronto about three years ago and she played this same song.

This link between weaving and music reminds me of some other songs which I hope to share with you in future posts.
