Minasian Rug Co.’s textile arts exhibit that I’ve been promoting the past few months received a nice mention in today’s Chicago Tribune, as an “Editor’s Pick” in the House & Homes section.
You can check out its coverage of “Island Magic – Court and Tribal Textiles from Indonesia” online here.
Previously, I posted more background about the exhibit (at Minasian’s Evanston location, 1244 Chicago Ave.) at Neighborhood Circle.com.
The exhibit has nearly two more weeks to go, concluding January 10th, so don’t just settle for watching some of the YouTube videos I uploaded–check out “Island Magic” in person for yourself.
In addition to coming across some amazing pieces, you may just bump into Stephen Blackwelder, the textile arts director for Minasian, or co-owner Carney Minasian (pictured, above).
