Linda is one of the artists in Tapestry Through Time, hanging at The Historic Taos Inn until February 1, 2016. White Sands is the second of her pieces to be featured on the Daily Dose!

“The rich southwest high desert landscapes influence my tapestries. The beauty found at White Sands National Monument in New Mexico touches me and moves me. There is no place like it on earth. I feel compelled to weave the play between light and dark.” – Linda

Make sure to head over to Linda’s website to see more of her beautiful tapestries. And if you didn’t catch her first piece on the Daily Dose, you can see it here!

Santa Clara Peak Var. by Janusz Kozikowski, 51”x36”, 1985

Santa Clara Peak Var. by Janusz Kozikowski, 51”x36”, 1985

You have probably noticed a couple missing Daily Doses over the weekend. I apologize for this, as I know this is the Daily Dose. However, sometimes life steps in the way. I promise to make this up to you later in the week, with a very Special Daily Dose! Make sure to keep an eye out for it, as it is inspiring in so many ways!

I also hope today’s Daily Dose helps to make up for it! This is a really special one, as it is not often one sees work by Janusz.

And with that I would like to welcome Janusz Kozikowski to the Daily Dose! Santa Clara Peak Var. is one of the pieces featured in Tapestry Through Time, hanging at The Historic Taos Inn until February 1, 2016.

You can see another piece by Janusz here, belonging to the New Mexico Capital Art Collection. It is part of what I believe is referred to as his Chair Series. It, too, is absolutely stunning!

I hope you love this Dose! Please leave a comment if you do!

When the Ocean and Desert Were One by Elizabeth J. Buckley, 28”x40”, hand woven, Aubusson-style (French) tapestry, moth-proofed wool weft threads on cotton seine twine warp

When the Ocean and Desert Were One by Elizabeth J. Buckley, 28”x40”, hand woven, Aubusson-style (French) tapestry, moth-proofed wool weft threads on cotton seine twine warp

Welcome Elizabeth J. Buckley to the Daily Dose! When the Ocean and Desert Were One is one of the pieces featured in Tapestry Through Time, hanging at The Historic Taos Inn until February 1, 2016.

As a child, I was first introduced to the concept of geologic time by my father when we would go fossil-hunting in the Flint Hills of Kansas. In the shale and limestone, I found forms of invertebrate life from when the prairie was once an ocean bottom so many millions of years ago. The same is also true for the desert. – Elizabeth

Elizabeth has a wonderful website, with a portfolio full of her tapestries…. and she also teaches classes!

Butterfly, original handwoven tapestry by Nancy Kozikowski, 39”x42.5”, 2012

Butterfly, original handwoven tapestry by Nancy Kozikowski, 39”x 42.5”, 2012

Today I would like to invite Nancy Kozikowski to the Daily Dose! Nancy is one of the artists featured in Tapestry Through Time, hanging at The Historic Taos Inn until February 1, 2016.

I have long admired Nancy’s work. She is one of the artists I often reference during my classes. I make sure that anyone flying in or out of the Albuquerque airport keeps an eye out for her beautiful (very large) tapestry hanging above the escalators, welcoming everyone who passes into our beautiful state.

Nancy now lives, and continues to weave, in Beijing, China. I feel very lucky to have her in this show and feature her work on the Daily Dose.

You can read about some of Nancy’s recent exhibitions here, here and here. Or head on over to her website to see some of her work. The size of some of her tapestries is beyond inspiring! If you happen to be in Albuquerque, make sure to stop by DSG Fine Art to see some of her pieces in person!

If you love this Dose, leave a comment!

Enjoy!

Teresa
