I went to a superb collection of exhibits currently at UCLA's Fowler Museum. "Weavers' Stories from the Island of Southeast Asia", "Nini Towok’s Spinning Wheel" and "Courtly and Urban Batik from Java" are feasts for the eyes from fine textile artists. Amazing detail in the work. The well thought out exhibits are wonderful educational tours about the dyeing and weaving art forms. The batik show closes September 5, and the others run until December 5. Catch them if you can!!
