Exhibition in Krapivna: White Lace (Winter Dreams)

_jpgDecember 27, 2016 - February 7, 2017
Krapivna Local History Museum

What do we usually asociate with white lace? For some people, it is items made by craftswomen, various collars and doilies, and the sound of lace bobbins. For others, it’s trees in hoarfrost, ice patterns on the window panes, and snowflakes. These both components will be present at the exhibition White Lace (Winter Dreams): the lace not made by human hands, but created by winter nature and captured by photographers; and the lace skillfully made by the hands of Tula craftswomen.   

Visitors to the exhibition will see over one hundred photos by doezens of photographers, among them Vyacheslav Malakhov, Igor Shcherbakov, Vladimir Tolstoy and many others; and over one hundred lace items form the collections of the Krapivna Museum, the Folk Arts Center of Tula Region Association of Centers for Development of Art, Culture and Tourism, Aleksei Chentsov, Ekaterina Zernova (the Traditional Tula Weaving Project), and the craftswomen Olga Skvortsova, Galina Petrova, Tatiana Bulatova and many others. 


Among the handmade lace items, on display will be lace items of the late 19th – early 20th centuries, bedskirts and tablecloths, doilies of the 1950s, and collections of modern craftswomen made with bobbins or with a crochet.
