Hedstrom’s nationally touring exhibition, Process and Pattern: Hand-dyed and Digitally Printed Textiles by Ana Lisa Hedstrom, organized by the Robert Hillestad Textiles Gallery, is running now through March 12 at the gallery.

A color catalog accompanies the exhibition and will be available to buy. A reception on the second floor will follow the lecture at 3 p.m. A limited collection of the artist’s hand-dyed silk scarves will be available for purchase at the reception only. Fabrics, clothing, and interior wall pieces will be exhibited.

In March 2003, Hedstrom was in residence at the International Textile Works, an entity of the Textiles, Clothing and Design Department, where she developed new fabrics based on her hand-dyed textiles. Working with the Mimaki textile printer at the International Textile Works, she has printed on silk with reactive dyes. The exhibit at the Hillestad Gallery documents Hedstrom’s studies.
