GWs Luther W. Brady Art Gallery has been showcasing art on the universitys Foggy Bottom campus for 15 years. The new exhibition, Drawn From: 15 Years of Exhibitions at the Luther W. Brady Art Gallery, celebrates highlights from the gallerys history and the universitys extensive art collection and new gifts of work by Howard Hodgkin and Holly Trostle Brigham.

Over the past 15 years, the gallery has created a niche in the community fo...

Cross-over design motifs are commonly seen in the weavings from this area. Collector Austin Doyle will explore the turbulent history, cultural influences, and identifying features of pile weavings from these border regions. Rug and Textile Appreciation Mornings bring together textile experts and enthusiasts for a thematic show and tell of personal pieces. Free; no reservations required.
