Metamorphosis: The Collaboration Between Photographer Robert Glenn Ketchum and the Suzhou Embroiderers

This exhibition runs Wednesday, September 14, 2011 through Friday, December 9, 2011


For over two decades, American photographer Robert Glenn Ketchum and Suzhou Master Embroiderer Meifang Zhang have collaborated to create transcendent embroideries based on Ketchum’s photographs of American nature. The success of that collaboration makes Metamorphosis a visual experience you will never forget, featuring silk embroideries that celebrate a unique vision of the natural world. The exhibition will be the international debut of the six foot tall embroidery Graceful Branch Movement just completed by Zhang’s Suzhou Embroidery Art Innovation Center (SEAIC) in China.
