Here’s more eye candy from galleries represented at last weekend’s show. I found this image of a 19th century “Shakrisabyz Embroidery” on the Mehmet Cetinkaya Gallery’s website. (Gallery is located in Istanbul.) Below top is a close-up of the textile — I especially like the golden yellow ground color and the flowering branches floating around the central medallion.

2/15 Update: I’m traveling out of town, and away from my computer, until Tuesday of next week — I look forward to adding some good new posts starting again on 2/19 or 2/20!
