The structure of boundweave invites experimentation with pattern.  When nineteen pieces by fifteen weavers are gathered together, that’s a lot of pattern and color to absorb as a viewer.  Within a single piece many of the bands can be different from each other.

The fragment from Mary Litsheim’s “Nordic Nature Color Memories” shows the fun of working with geometric patterns.  Is this a band of diamonds?  Or is it a band of Xs.? It’s both, of course, but it illustrates how a narrow band of white seen from a distance will be more interesting as you come closer.  Taking in the nineteen pieces in the “Timeless Traditions” show will be a pattern-intense experience.
