Pacific Portals and video viewing

Here is a link to a video of the entries in the Pacific Portals small format exhibit at Convergence 2012 in Long Beach, CA. I was unable to attend Convergence this year and was glad to be able to see the exhibit in this format. I got my copy of the catalog from ATA last week, but seeing the pieces in a video format helped me better envision what they were like.

(This is the first time I've tried to actually imbed the video on the blog. If it doesn't work, use the link here:

A big thanks to Debby Thompson for making this video and posting it for us all to see. The combination of the catalog and the video made the show much more real for me. I still wish I could peer at the tapestries from a foot away, but perhaps next time.

The Pacific Portals catalog can be purchased from the American Tapestry Alliance on their catalogs page linked here.

Perhaps video will be a new way to see artwork for the times we can't travel. It certainly helps the spatial experience of something like tapestry which is not completely flat (and often not flat at all). Any thoughts on this?

  1. The video was really nice - thanks for the link. I had debated buying the catalog - now I'm off to buy it.
