Lexington Historical Society welcomes you to an exhibition of historical textiles from their collection ranging from the mid-18th century to the 1960s. This is part of a new initiative, Contemporary Meets Colonial, which marks the first time the Society integrates contemporary art into the period rooms of Buckman Tavern.
Nine contemporary textile artists are featured alongside the collection pieces, creating conversations between the old and new: Merill Comeau, Carson Fox, Ania Gilmore, Sandra Golbert, Carolyn Halliday, Gyöngy Laky, Adrienne Sloane, Kathryn Stanko and Darlene Wigton. The Society is grateful for the artists’ participation and interest in the collection.
This special exhibition is included with admission to the museum!
