Seminars for Beginning Collectors

ARTS visitors with a burgeoning interest in antique weavings and textile art are encouraged to take advantage of our Seminars for Beginning Collectors.
Several experts specializing in various areas will be available to explain nuances of structure and materials of rugs and textiles, geographic attributions and identification of pieces and any related questions one might have.

Appointments may be made with our secretary at the reception desk and are free to the public.

Visitors to ARTS can request a complimentary guided tour of the show! This is a great opportunity for both novices who would like to get more general information about antique rugs and ethnographic weavings or expert collectors searching for specific pieces or genres. Tours can be arranged with staff at the front desk or in the under $500 room.

Beginning collectors and those with a blossoming interest in antique weavings and textile arts are encouraged to take advantage of this option.
