Unbroken Web: The Art of Ellen & Lucy Begay @Central CMR

Unbroken Web book cover
April 18, 2015 - 11:00am (ended)

Author Gary Beaudoin will visit the library to discuss his book, The Unbroken Web.  Beaudoin and the three generations of Begay weavers--grandmother Mary, mother Lucy, and daughter Ellen--celebrate the spirit of the Southwest in a profoundly personal way. The freshly redesigned work features nineteen exquisite wool textiles crafted by the Begay women, complete with notes about the inspirations and traditions behind the creation of each. Color photographs show the textiles, the weavers at work, and the timeless landscapes that have inspired their ancestors for centuries.  Mr. Beaudoin will bring authentic Begay weavings to exhibit and discuss.
