Helena Hernmarck: Weaving In Progress has opened in the beautiful Connecticut town Ridgefield, an hour and a half from New York City.

Time your trip right, and the talented Hernmarck will be artist in residence, weaving at the museum three times per week until the exhibition closes on January 19.

Hernmarck 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. Many of her 20 tapestries are 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 left over sequin material.
