Jointly created by the Japanese Embroidery Center in Atlanta and Kurenai-kai, LTD in Japan, Splendid Silk: Japanese Embroidery features over 100 traditional works by contemporary artists including designs on kimonos, scrolls, and samplers. The exhibition will be ever-changing as work is displayed in rotation so that the delicate fabric is not compromised by long exposure to light.
