The new potential for seeing the work of other tapestry artists and the ability to observe how one's own work might fare in such venues profoundly increased the awareness of a community of like-minded artists.
Regional groups were formed for producing exhibits and sharing information. The desire of many artists for greater interaction escalated as an international tapestry symposium in Melbourne, Australia in lead to a second organization committed to tapestry, the International Tapestry Network ITNET. Its goal was to connect American tapestry artists with the burgeoning international community.
The magazines were discontinued in as communicating digitally became a more useful tool for interactions. As the world has moved into the digital age, tapestry artists around the world continue to share and inspire each other's work. By the new millennium however, fault lines had surfaced within the field.
Many universities that previously had strong weaving components in their art departments, such as San Francisco State University, no longer offered handweaving as an option as they shifted their focus to computerized equipment.
A primary cause for discarding the practice was the fact that only one student could use the equipment for the duration of a project whereas in most media, like painting or ceramics, the easels or potters wheels were used by several students in a day. Worldwide, people from all different cultures began adopting these forms of decor for profession and personal use.
At the same time, "fiber art" had become one of the most popular mediums in their art programs. Young artists were interested in exploring a wider scope of processes for creating art through the materials classified as fiber. This shift to more multimedia and sculptural forms and the desire to produce work more quickly had the effect of pushing contemporary tapestry artists inside and outside the academic institutions to ponder how they might keep pace in order to sustain visibility in their art form. I came to tapestry after several years of exploring complex weaves.
I became enamored with tapestry because of its simplicity — its straightforward qualities. It allowed me to investigate form or image or texture, and it had the structural integrity to hold its own form. I loved the substantial quality of a tapestry woven with heavy threads—its object quality.
My passion for tapestry arrived suddenly on the first day of my introduction to it in my first year at ECA [Edinburgh College of Art. From that day I have been able to plough a straight path deeper and deeper into tapestry, through my studies in Scotland and Poland, my 8 years as a studio weaver in England and Australia and since as an independent tapestry artist. The demanding creative ethos of the tapestry department gave me the confidence, motivation and self-discipline I needed to move out into the world as a professional tapestry weaver and artist.
What was most inspiring for me as a young student was that my tutors in the department were all practising, exhibiting artists engaging positively with what was then a cutting edge international Fibre Art movement. Today, its lack of a defined purpose, its rarity, gives me an opportunity to seek new roles, to extend its historic language and, above all, to dominate my compulsive, creative drive.
The term tapestry is also used to describe weft-faced textiles made on Jacquard looms. Before the s tapestry upholstery fabrics and reproductions of the famous tapestries of the Middle Ages had been produced using Jacquard techniques but more recently, artists such as Chuck Close , Patrick Lichty , and the workshop Magnolia Editions have adapted the computerised Jacquard process to producing fine art. However, in Jacquard weaving , the repeating series of multicoloured warp and weft threads can be used to create colours that are optically blended — i.
This method can be likened to pointillism , which originated from discoveries made in the tapestry medium. The principles articulated by Chevreul also apply to contemporary television and computer displays, which use tiny dots of red, green and blue RGB light to render colour, with each composite being called a pixel.
