Baltimore Museum of Art: Field trip, anyone?

Poster: karen@georesearch.com (Karen Green)

Hello, all!

I'm putting together webpages for Atlantian Twelfth Night, and am adding
a "field trip" page for those who get into town early or stay late and
want to see some of the neat exhibits that will be in town then.

Lo and behold, at the Baltimore Museum of Art, they have the following
exhibit listed:

Through FEBRUARY 15 
In Prayse of the Needle : English Needlework from the 17th-19th

To coincide with A Grand Design: The Art of the Victoria and Albert
Museum, the exhibition of major holdings from one of London's great
museums, The Baltimore Museum of Art presents an exhibition of British
needlework. Select objects, drawn entirely from the BMA's fine textile
collection, include approximately two dozen embroidered works of
primarily English origin dating from the 17th through the 19th
centuries. Featured are examples of raised work pictures (formerly
termed "stumpwork"), samplers, pictorial silk embroideries, and objects
decorated with crewelwork (embroidered in woolen threads). Subject
matters of these delicate textiles range from biblical and pastoral
narratives to floral designs.

So, anyone up for a field trip?  :)
