Over fifty handwoven compositions of color and weave effects created by Gretchen Romey-Tanzer are on view from February 8 through April 2, 2023. This expansive collection of the artist’s work inhabits multiple galleries at Highfield Hall, offering visitors a unique and intimate environment in which to view these hand-loomed technically complex works of art. Made over the past three decades, with fifteen made in the past two years alone, Romey-Tanzer’s passion for her craft is evident in all that she weaves. Her oeuvre consists of double woven cotton constructions, and a current foray into traditional Nordic rugmaking techniques, Rya and Ripsi Raanu, which she learned initially as a child when first exploring the loom.
