Bhakti Ziek 

When: Oct. 26-Nov. 26 2016
Phone: 802-767-9670
An innovator in textile art, particularly Jacquard weaving techniques, Ziek moved to Randolph in 2008. Some or her works currently on view at the BigTown Gallery in Rochester are new, and some are older. Of the 20 weavings in her exhibit, titled “Lexicon,” each belongs to one of three weaving technique families: taqueté, samitum or lampas. “Samit Duck” and “Taqueté Rabbit” each reference their own structure and creation, offering didactic text about the particular language of warp and weft used to make them. The more demure “Refuge” series is made up of eight small-scale taqueté, or hand-woven, panels, which gallery owner Anni Mackay suggests represent a back-to- basics exercise for Ziek — a master linguist’s humble return to the alphabet.
