Weaving In Progress is the first solo exhibition of Helena Hernmarck's work in the U.S. since 2012.

Many of her 20 tapestries will be hung from the ceiling, so visitors can experience the complex three-dimensionality of her weaving technique, and the unusual materials she sometimes uses, such as leftover sequin material.

Hernmarck is an internationally acclaimed artist and weaver who is recognized for revolutionizing weaving tapestry as a medium suited to modern architectural environments. Her technique is a play on traditional Swedish weaving techniques, which she has evolved to achieve powerful photorealistic effects.
