Pamela Topham: Tapestry Visions

Winner of the 2015 – 77th Annual Guild Hall Members Exhibition

Selected by Marla Prather, Curator for the Development of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Museum of Modern Art. Detailed colored pencil drawings, photograph, and multiple site visits are sources for Topham’s tapestry designs. She weaves on a high warp tapestry loom using wool silk and linen in varied textures and hues to form the foreground, while fine gradations of wool and silk capture the interplay of the ever-changing relationships of Earth, Sea and sky in the distance. 

Curated by Christina Mossaides Strassfield, Museum Director/Chief Curator.

On View October 21 –December 31  

Moran Gallery 

This exhibition traces the familial artistic legacy of patriarch Manoucher Yektai and his two sons: painter/sculptor Darius and furniture maker/sculptor Niko.

Manoucher Yektai’s life has brought him through three cultures: Iran, France, and the United States. His trajectory can be seen as a search for Modernism. From Iran, where under Islamic strictures about imagery, free artistic expression was not available, first to the ripe ambience of the School of Paris, then to the fledgling excitement of the emerging New York School. Manoucher’s life in the arts directly influenced his sons and the path that they chose. The similarities and differences of their work and their visions will be examined.
