The tour will feature a rotation of textiles in the Pratt’s home gallery that was part of the Fall 2018 exhibition A Nomad’s Art: Kilims of Anatolia at the George Washington University Museum and The Textile Museum. The showing will feature Anatolian kilims and flat weaves, embroideries from the Ottoman world, Ottoman Syrian robes and hats, and a wide array of additional hats of the silk road from greater Turkey. In addition, a variety of other antique and contemporary international craft art will be on display.

Marc and Diane Grainer

The couple has been collecting studio craft in all media for more than 30 years, with special emphasis on British ceramics and artist-made furniture. Highlights of the museum-worthy collection include a commission by 2019 Master of the Medium Therman Statom as well as important work by artists Robert Arneson and Judy McKie.
