About the Exhibition:
"Dyed Well" is a survey exhibition highlighting the weaving and rug hooking practice of artist Emily ‘Emmy’ Robertson. Through a feminist lens, Robertson pushes the boundaries of storytelling and visual aesthetics by hooking hand-dyed wool into fantastical tapestries that depict historical moments in politics, natural landscapes, humor, and the artist’s complex and insightful personal narrative. "Dyed Well" celebrates her active career, current studio practice, and impact on contemporary weaving disciplines.  


"Dyed Well" has been made possible through the generosity of Collectors' Corner, Inc.
