Art Student Wins Award

SEPT. 29, 2006--UW-River Falls textile art student Tracy Herlache of Lake Elmo, Minn. was awarded Honorable Mention at the Schaht Student Showcase: A Juried Exhibit of Woven Textiles for her tapestry "Fall Veins." The showcase ran from June 25-30 and was held at Kendall College in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Herlache's piece is one of fifty chosen for the exhibition, which featured entries in three categories: wall hanging, functional and sculptural. The Schaht Student Showcase is open to all students currently enrolled in U.S. fiber arts programs and aims to create a better awareness of the next generation of weavers and explore the direction in which handweaving is moving as well as raise the profile of textile art students and the schools they attend, and to create an important dialogue with the weaving community and the general public.

Schaht Spindle Company, Inc. is celebrating its 37 th year as one of the largest handweaving loom and spinning wheel manufacturers in the world with over 400 dealers worldwide. Founded in 1969, the company is known for creating quality tools designed for performance and appearance.
