PRIME Gallery
52 McCaul Street, Toronto ON M5T 1V9
Wed-Sat 11-5

attention all Toronto Textile people, get yourself to PRIME gallery and see the Goblin Tapestries of Tamara Jaworska. I went to the opening and was appalled by the lack of all you textile workers/ lovers. Her work is like Molten Rock,Lichens and Queen Ann's Lace. the night sky exploding with morning dew. The opportunity to meet her was not to be missed , if this was Japan she would be a" Living Treasure "

If you did missed the moment ,her book launch is being rescheduled for the end of September. you must see this work live to enjoy its beauty. strength and power. do not miss it.
