Tapestry Weavers West (TWW) and Tapestry Weavers in New England (TWiNE) present thought-provoking contemporary tapestry in a bi-coastal exhibition. Climate change has impacted the world in myriad ways —intense and extensive forest fires, rain-laden atmospheric rivers, category five hurricanes, and massive flooding are a few dramatic examples. The dire consequential effect of these events on air and water quality, on the loss of habitat for many plant and animal species, and on population relocation and infrastructure damage is advancing at a faster pace than ever. Moreover, the extraordinary expenses of repairs and restoration will shift valuable funds away from education and health needs.
