It only took seeing three of Michael F. Rohde’s tapestries at the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art’s 2013 exhibition of Tapestry Weavers West, to know that if SLOMA could possibly give him a solo exhibition someday, that our Museum visitors could have the special privilege of seeing this world class weaver’s subliminal texture and his masterful interaction of light and color for themselves.
Serendipity came into play and the stars aligned, not only to bring The Empathy of Patience to SLOMA’s Gray Wing January 25—March 17, 2019, but also to spare his collection from the destructive Woolsey Fire that threatened Rohde’s studio and home in Thousand Oaks this past November.
Thursday, February 7 at 12 PM: Art at High Noon artist’s talk and gallery tour with Michael F. Rohde. Free admission.
Monday, February 18 at 7 PM: Film Night: Threads with a special introduction by SLOMA curator Ruta Saliklis. Suggested donation $5 members, $7 general at the door.
Join SLOMA for an opening reception in conjunction with Art After Dark on Friday, February 1 from 6 to 9 PM (members-only preview 5 to 6 PM).
