textile artist, silk ikat

Polly Barton is one of eleven contemporary textile artists whose work will be featured in The Textile Museum’s upcoming exhibition, “Sourcing The Museum” (3/23/12 – 8/19/12). Under the direction of Jack Lenor Larsen, the show’s contributing artists were invited to create new works in direct response to the inspirational contents of the museum’s rich historical collection. Both new and old works will be on display, creating a visual dialogue that the museum subtitles “museum as muse”.
