Lowell was once the place for manufacturing textiles, but now it is a destination for textile art. Venues range from the American Textile History Museum to the New England Quilt Museum.
This summer, the list includes Moments of Pure Seeing, a mixed media textile art exhibit of work by artists Linda Branch Dunn and Sonja Lee‐Austin at the Loading Dock Gallery opening July 29.
Dunn and Lee‐Austin have been creating textile art in Lowell for many years. Lee‐Austin opened Friends Fabric Art with her mother, Ann Lee, in downtown Lowell in June 2002. Dunn was among the first artists to join Lowell’s Western Avenue Studios when it opened in 2005. Both artists continue to create their art in Lowell at their studios at Western Avenue Studios.
