Nancy Hoskins WeavingTut Inspired Textiles - Through December 5, Coos Bay

Reproductions of woven designs found in King Tut’s clothing are on display in the Oregon debut of the exhibit, Egyptian Memories—weavings by textile artist and art historian Nancy Arthur Hoskins. Previously exhibited at Vanderbilt University, Egyptian Memories is on display at the Coos Art Museum through December 5.
Hoskins, an internationally recognized author, teacher, and artist has studied ancient Egyptian fabrics in more than 50 museums around the world, including the original tunic of Tutankhamen in Egypt. She replicates pieces from these fabrics on her loom. During her studies she has discovered and reproduced ancient weaving techniques which have long since disappeared. An expert weaver with an academic background, she has challenged some of the “accepted facts” about how ancient Egyptian textiles were made. Nancy has exhibited and given talks on the topic at Vanderbilt and Yale Universities, and is currently lecturing and teaching in London and Devon, England.

Museum hours are 10 a.m.4 p.m., Tuesday through Friday and 14 p.m. on Saturday. Admission is $5 general, $2 for students, veterans and seniors, and free to museum members. (541-267-3901; www.coosart.org)
