Join us for an afternoon at Pittsburgh Center for Arts and Media to see the work of two admirable and admired Fiberarts Guild members.

Henry Hallet has always been fascinated by the way an image can be built within a woven structure and the way colors can be blended in fiber. His new work in needlework rests on the foundation of 18 years spent weaving tapestry and his love for ancient tapestry and art history.

Henry will also discuss the work of his friend David Mooney, who passed away in July of 2019. David was fascinated by old tapestries from an early age. As a college student, he spent many hours in the weaving studio as an observer and helper. Later he became an accomplished tapestry artist but struggled with the frustration of fitting into the art world. He became a sound engineer. After retiring 27 years later, he returned to tapestry.
