November 1-30.

Opening reception on First Friday, November 1st, 5-8 pm


For the month of November,

the Corner Gallery will feature the weaving of Stephanie Hoppe.

“Twenty years ago,” Hoppe said, “I began weaving with rugs, on a Navajo-style loom that produces pieces with selvages on all
four sides. Although I now

predominately weave tapestries,

I often return to rug weaving, as I like

the discipline of the piece needing

to be evenly and tightly woven for

good wear as well

as to lie flat and square on the
floor. But the techniques I use for rugs

and tapestries are the same, and
freedom from the practical restraints

of rugs does allow greater
experimentation with design

—which I also enjoy.”


This show features several of Hoppe’s larger rugs, together with large and
small tapestries and a number of the very small works (10 inches by 10 in)
