Occasionally, all of the hard work and craziness here at z| gets a payoff. And that’s what happened this week, when we received an invitation to an opening party at DAM! One of Randy’s colleagues has teamed up with the Denver Art Museum for a playful and fascinating exhibit showcasing the textiles and works of Jacqueline Groag. Groag was Czech in descent, married a rather well known architect, and later in life her work eclipsed his through her comical and fun designs.
The party itself was small and intimate, with friends of the owners of the Collection and Museum patrons in attendance. As usual, the food and conversation were both exceptional, but the textiles and works of Groag stole the show. While this is a small exhibition in comparison the the YSL exhibit we wrote about last year, you do not want to let this one get away without a viewing. Ahead of her time, Groag developed patterns that are still fresh and pertinent in today’s styles, and would be a welcome addition to any interior design project.
Pattern Play: The Contemporary Designs of Jacqueline Groag, opens on May 19th and runs through September 22nd at the Ponti building (aka the North building) of the Denver Art Museum. We encourage you to check it out, along with the other textile exhibits featured in DAM’s SPUN: Adventures in Textiles.
