ArtXchange gallery down in Pioneer Square presents “Stitched, Woven, Sewn,” a new exhibition featuring contemporary, traditional, and tribal textiles from the gallery’s collection. The exhibition includes traditional and contemporary silk weavings from Laos, finely detailed alpaca shawls from Peru, traditional ikat sarongs from Indonesia, contemporary wearable silks from Thailand, and tribal textile pieces from weaving tribes of Central Asia, and much more.

“Stitched, Woven, Sewn” brings together stunning textile works from Southeast Asia to Africa to South America and beyond, presented alongside stories, maps, and photographs that provide the viewer a chance to learn more about the cultural and artistic significance of the textile arts. The exhibition is touch-friendly, inviting the viewer to handle the textiles and feel the difference between alpaca or wool, run their fingers over appliqué and embroidery, and connect hand to hand with the maker of the work.
