EWU student gallery to showcase tapestries from Kyrgyzstan

The Eastern Washington University Student Art Gallery, 404 Second St., Cheney, will present “The Song of Silence: Embroidered Tapestries of Kyrgyz Nomads,” Jan. 8 through Feb. 9.

EWU student Angeline Nesbit curated the exhibit from the collection of Anne Marie Burk in Spokane. Nesbit intends to show the tapestries as an example of the country’s history and the influences of the women who created them.

Nomadic women in Kyrgyzstan worked to create these tapestries to display in their homes over a period of 100 years.

The gallery will hold a reception Jan. 25 from 4 to 6:30 p.m., and will provide refreshments and hors d’oeuvres.
