Color, Texture, Perspective:
Transforming Silk into Art and Fashion

Diane Tuckman
Aug. 18 — Nov. 7, 2014
U.S. District Court

6500 Cherrywood Lane
Greenbelt, MD 20770
7 AM – 7 PM

Diane Tuckman was born in Egypt, escaped to France in 1948, and came to the United States in 1958. In 1978, Diane launched Ivy Imports to import silk painting products to the U.S. and thereby brought the art form of painting on silk to this country. In addition to co-founding Silk Painters International (SPIN), a non-profit to promote silk art, Diane teaches and exhibits her work. She has co-authored three books about painting on silk with Jan Janas, with a fourth to be published soon. Diane is also a photographer and some of her photographs are printed on silk, showcasing her experimentation with color and texture. She allows the silk to tell her how to transform it: wall art, yardage for fashion, or home décor. The endless possibilities of this art form are on display in this exhibition: different silks, paints, dyes and various techniques.

Group tours of the show conducted upon request.
