You Are Invited

February 25, 2011

To a Modest Gallery Opening Reception

March 3, 2011; 6-8 pm at the Unitarian Church Gallery; 4700 Grover Avenue; Austin, TX

Featuring Thirty Five Miniature Tapestries by Anne Beversdorf  (including five brand-new ones).

Please come to this modest reception, bring your friends, nibble and drink, and enjoy the first opportunity anywhere to see ALL my unsold works in one place!

These tapestries, are made of silk and metallic thread and embellished with beads, faceted gemstones, and freshwater pearls.  They depict sacred images adapted from medieval imagery and other sources from Christian, Jewish, Islamic, Buddhist, and Hindu traditions.  Each image is smaller than a piece of typing paper and takes an average of 400 hours to make, with over 500 stitches per square inch.

    fell into this fabulous website @ 0200 at work one nightshift (I’m a nurse), It took my breath away, and I wondered where you are…then I saw the Austin gallery exhibit (advertised online). Your work is extraordinary!

    Thank you so much, Linda! It’s so nice to hear the work ‘speaks’ to someone else!

Got something to say?
