Textiles Exhibition

After the business end of the trip to America we had four lovely days of shopping and sight seeing.  Before I left home I was told by one of the ladies staying at Sewjourn about a textiles exhibition  at the Russian Museum in Minneapolis.  So one day I jumped on a bus and trekked to a different part of town and visited the museum.  What a fun morning!  I got to see parts of town that I would not have been to otherwise…….and what a gorgeous exhibition!  For much of the time I was in the exhibition hall by myself so I could just stand and absorb all the beautiful work.  The photos I took aren’t that great because of course it was no flash photography but there are some more photos on their website.

(The blue sky in this photo reminds me of the gorgeous weather we had in America – nice to think of in the midst of a cold Melbourne winter!)

I enjoyed wandering through the rest of the museum as well……some nice paintings and some amazing lacquer work.  Thanks for the tip off Yvonne, it was one of the highlights of my trip.

    Oh Dang It! It looks like a great exhibition — I’d love to have seen the laquered painting too. If I didn’t have my day job, I might actually have time to see other things besides market! 😉

    What do you mean the photos aren’t that great?? They look great to me!! I often think you get a more realistic representation of what something looks like without using a flash anyway. And your photos don’t even have the blurr that often occurs without a flash. You must have very steady hands Jan! Were these taken with your new camera?
    I’m so glad you had such a great time on your trip!
