Featured artwork: Winter Stream

Editor’s note:

This tapestry by weaver Tabitha Gilmore-Barnes represents “a stream amongst the melting snows and ice, revealing the beginnings of spring and last year’s grasses and weeds beneath the water.”

Tabitha’s process began with 25+ images of the stream bed near her studio. Above are two of the images; below is the collection of photos alongside a woven sampler she created.

In 1995, she used these photos to create a woodblock color reduction print, pictured below.

The final step was a tapestry woven in wools, completed in 2000. Winter Stream is pictured below, framed.
