Anni Albers, Textile Design pioneer

Just in case you're in the area, there is an exhibition of Anni Albers work from Sat 7th May to Sat 25 June at Warwick Arts Centre, which is part of Warwick University in Coventry.  The Mead Gallery is open Monday to SAturday 12 noon to 9pm. Closed Sundays and Bank Holidays. Free entry.

"Anni Albers was one of the pioneers of modern art. A pre-eminent textile artist, she studied with Paul Klee at the Bauhaus. Throughout her life she experimented with every medium she employed. As well as working in textiles, she also made inventive jewellery from ordinary household objects and latterly worked in printmaking.

This is the first time that Anni Albers' prints, textiles and jewellery have been seen together in Britain and this is the only English showing of this exhibition. Works have been generously loaned by Alan Cristea and by the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation in Connecticut USA."
