Exhibition: HV Textile Graduation Exhibition

After our exhibition at HV Gallery, they opened the textile student's graduation exhibition. The last couple of years they have showed their work at Almgrens Sidenväveri. But since the gallery has reopened they now are showing it in-house in stead. As always the student's show great craftsmanship as well as artistic ambition. Here are some of my favorites;

Oxelösunds skärgård

This week a rug from Alice Lund Textilier was sold at Bukowskis Contemporary auction. It was a knotted pile rug designed by Dagmar Lodén in 1969 called "Oxelösunds skärgård" (Oxelösunds archipelago). A beautiful rug in good condition about 2m x 3m. I hadn't seen this design before so it was exciting to go visit it at the auction house. And as always when something is sold I wonder where the rug's new home will be...

Vävmagasinet

In the latest number of Vävmagasinet (the Scandinavian Weaving Magazine) there is a four page article about Alice Lund Textilier and our rugs. We are so happy to show all of Vävmagasinet's readers what we do in our looms! I hope most of you have a subscription already (it comes in both Swedish and English) but if you don't here is the English version of the article. If the text is to small to read, a larger version is found on our website.

Change of plans

Unfortunately we had to cancel tomorrow's lectures with Helena and me. Helena got sick last week and had to cancel her trip to Sweden this time. Both Helena and I was really disappointed as almost a hundred people wanted to come and hear about our work. But the positive thing is that now we know there is a great interest for such an event so we will surely make a new attempt in the near future!

Instead we will have an open house tomorrow at the exhibition until 20.00 with some "fika". The weaver Ebba will be there to show how to weave rölakan-technique and I will be there as well. Welcome to visit the exhibition!

Välkomna till föreläsningskväll i samband med utställningen ”Ur vävstolen – en utställning om Alice Lund Textilier”! Föreläsningar av textilkonstnären Helena Hernmarck och Frida Lindberg, verksamhetsledare och ägare av Alice Lund Textiliers ateljé. Konstväverskan Ebba Bergström från Alice Lund Textilier finns på plats vid vävstolen och visar hur man väver rölakansteknik.
Under kvällen kommer textilkonstnären Helena Hernmarck att ta oss med på en resa genom hennes konstnärskap. I mer än 50 år har hon varit tongivande på den textila konstscenen både i Sverige och USA. I sin ateljé, och även i samarbete med Alice Lund Textilier, har hon utfört monumental textilkonst som finns representerad i offentlig miljö och på museer världen över. Helena själv skriver om sin konst; ”Min önskan är att fånga bilden i det flyende ögonblicket och bevara det i vävnadens fortsatta och tidsbejakande process.”
Frida Lindberg kommer att ge en föreläsning om handvävningsateljén Alice Lund Textilier – i nutid och dåtid. Med utgångspunkt i Alice Lunds konstnärskap och hennes funktionalistiska tankegångar pratar Frida om ateljéns verksamhet. Fokus ligger på arbetet i vävstolarna med textil konst, mattor och kyrkliga textilier och forskning utifrån Alice Lund Textiliers arkiv.
Torsdag 23 april, 18.00- 20.00. FULLTECKNAD
Extrainsatt föreläsning torsdag 23 april, kl 16.00 – 18.00, välkomna att föranmäla till frida@alicelund.se 
(Welcome to an evening of textile art and hand weaving during the exhibition "Out of the loom" at HV Gallery! Textile artist Helena Hernmarck and Frida Lindberg from Alice Lund Textilier will both give talks on their work in the looms. Thursday April 23rd 16.00, rsvp to frida@alicelund.se)

Welcome to HV Gallery!

Now we've opened the exhibition! It has been a constant stream of interested visitors. It feels great to get the opportunity to talk to people about Alice Lund Textilier's work and about hand weaving and textile art. In the coming weeks I've moved my Stockholm office to the exhibition space and will be here almost every Wednesday to Saturday. So feel free to come by, talk textiles and look at our work! More information about the exhibition here.
