Join curator and TSA member Dr. Ruth Barnes for an exclusive day-visit to the Yale University Art Gallery and its rich collection of textiles from Indonesia. The small-group tour begins at the Gallery, which recently re-opened to the public following major-- and highly praised -- expansions. Participants will gather for an à-la-carte luncheon at the Union League Café. In the afternoon Ruth will guide a focused session examining weavings from Lampung and Palembang (South Sumatra), Java, Borneo and Sulawesi at YUAG’s off-site collections storage. A private reception will complete the day.
The tour is limited to 12 participants and will offer a special discount for students and one full scholarship. Early registration for TSA members continues until April 5, 2013 with general registration closing April 16, 2013.

TEXTILES CLOSE UP is an exciting new series of study-workshops that reflects the Textile Society of America’s ongoing commitment to the exchange and dissemination of information about textiles. It will provide opportunities to examine textiles in leading museum and private collections, guided by renowned experts.
The 2013 program is partially supported with a generous donation from Textile Arts (Santa Fe, New Mexico).
