Come meet Eric Chavez Santiago and his sister Janet, who are visiting from Oaxaca, Mexico. Their family weaves extraordinary 100% wool rugs that are dyed with natural plant materials, indigo and cochineal. Eric and Janet have taught and exhibited widely throughout the U.S. Their family’s rugs are in permanent museum and private collections, including the Snite Museum of Art at the University of Notre Dame. They have taught at NC State University, University of California at Santa Cruz, Purdue University and the Museum of Quilts and Textiles in San Jose, California. They have exhibited in New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Indianapolis, Chapel Hill, and Madison, WI.
If you are interested in weaving, fiber arts, natural dyes, and textiles, please join us. If you can’t attend the Pittsboro, NC, exhibition and sale, come meet them in Durham earlier in the week.
