Women Textile Designers

This is the website of the exhibition 'Designing Women of Postwar Britain; their art and the modern interior', which was at the Colorado Springs Fine Art Center from 20 September 2008 to 25 January 2009. Curated by Shanna Shelby and Tariana Navas-Nieves, the exhibition draws on the Denver collection of Jill A. Wiltse and H. Kirk Brown III. It features approximately 120 works by six female designers and showcases three of these designers: Lucienne Day, Marian Mahler, and Jacqueline Groag. The website foregrounds three textile designs by each of the designers, including 'Calyx' by Lucienne Day, as well as an example of work by each of the other designers, Mary White, Mary Warren, and Paule Vezelay. There are also photographic portraits of Day, Mahler and Groag.
