Event Description

The Branch Gallery is excited to announce their next exhibition, Trish Lange Designer Handwovens: The Wacky Weaver. This exhibition features work by Trish Lange, a nationally recognized designer of handwoven clothing. Over thirty-five years ago, Lange ventured into garment design, creating pieces with drape and high glamour at a time when most hand-weaving was heavy and ethnic. Lange’s creative work in this exhibition illustrates her wide range of technique and uniqueness as a designer. This is especially seen in her ensembles made from unusual materials, which include garments made from signage tape, bubble wrap, and mylar ribbon. Other work displayed in the gallery are wall hangings with a sense of humor and garments inspired by “challenges” from fiber groups Lange belongs to.

 

Trish Lange has sold over 5,000 one-of-a-kind garments in stores and galleries across the country. She is a self-taught weaver who quips, “I don’t do yardage,”—Lange creates her own patterns for all her garments, which are designed to have little sewing and fabric waste. This process led to a demand for Lange to teach at guilds and conferences throughout the United States. This exhibition celebrates Trish Lange’s many years as a designer, displaying pieces she created during her weaving career.

 

The opening reception will include informal modeling and refreshments. A large boutique will be on site, which will include Trish Lange’s garments, fiber and felted jewelry, scarves, and cards.
