meet the Ackermans

I just discovered Evelyn and Jerome Ackerman. I love their approach, breadth, sense of adventure and their mutual admiration for each other. Evelyn's tapestry work is intriguing. She took medieval designs and updated them for a contemporary audience. Next term we will do more tapestry and jacquard weaving. I'm already starting to generate ideas. Once we get going, it's hard to stop and think.
