A few corrections to our Q1 Member Magazine:
Pg. 10. The end of the Curator's article reads..."The Civil War marks the beginning of the end of all of these hand woven textiles."
Pg. 15. The dates of Jack’s workshop are incorrect on the bottom the page. They should be “May 3-4,” not “May 2-3.”
Pg. 18 Material Men 2: Contemporary Masters: Kathleen Kok is also one of the Guest Curators!
