Upcoming exhibit in NYC

The Plimoth Plantaion Embroider's Story blog has an entry up about an upcoming exhibit in NYC this winter. This sounds really wonderful, and I too can't wait to see the exhibit and resulting catalog. While it is being put together in part by an assistant curator from the Met, it will be hosted at the Bard Graduate Center instead of in the Met itself. The exhibit is called 'Twixt Art and Nature: English Embroidery from the Met, 1580-1700, and so far only has pictures of later stumpwork and a pair of gloves in the online portion, but will hopefully have much much more stuff closer to the 1600 end of the scale.  I definitely need to add this to my list of things to get to this winter. A nice long weekend, Thursday through Monday, could be good fun for this and seeing other things in NYC.
