Alexander Black House & Cultural Center presents the Exhibit Opening and Reception: “Neologism” by Textile Artists of Virginia (TAVA) on Thursday, March 15, 2018.

What do a guiltar, giraffiti, or smombies have in common? They are all neologisms - new words or phrases that are added to English dictionaries each year, illustrating how our language continues to evolve.

Members of the art collective “TAVA” - Textile Artists of Virginia - created a series of quilts inspired by various neologisms that found their way into modern English. Some of the neologisms were created more recently, such as white-fi and facetime. Others, like the word zipper, are now well established and recognizable by just about anyone.

Please join us for this reception to meet members of TAVA, to see their beautiful creations, and to hear the stories behind their art.

TAVA and its members are some of the most accomplished textile artists of our time. TAVA has exhibited locally, at the Virginia Quilt Museum, and the Taiwan International Quilt Festival. Members are part of an exhibit that has toured nationally over the past three years. Karin Tauber organized the Blue Ridge Quilt Festival that took place in Blacksburg for many years, Marietta Price is the owner of a fabric store, and Paula Golden has taught internationally and continues to teach here in Blacksburg.

Light refreshments will be provided.

The exhibit will remain on display until Saturday, March 24.
