Announcement of a Virtual Version of a Recent Texile Museum RTAM on "The 'Memling' Gul Motif"
This email announces the post of a virtual version of a Textile Museum Rug and Textile Appreciation Morning (RTAM) program that I gave on the subject of The Memling Motif on October 2, 2010.
This post has two parts, first a longish lecture, and then a brief show and tell of pieces that I and some in the audience had brought in. This topic is one that Wendel Swan and I had planned, perhaps, to treat together, but his world got very busy, and so Ive gone ahead with it, I hope not entirely to its detriment.
You can reach these two posts by clicking on the link immediately below or by copying the link and pasting it into your browser.
All of these methods take you to an about page on my blog. The posts being announced are the first two in red in the column on the right.
There are, again, a large number of images in the lecture post, so you may have to be a bit patient while it loads. (Some readers report that images sometimes do not come up automatically, but instead a blank rectangle with a small box containing a red X appears. If you encounter that, try putting your cursor on the red X, then, right click. A drop down menu should appear with a Show image alternative. Click that and the image should come up. You may have to do this individually for each image that doesnt appear automatically. We are not sure but one theory about why this happens suggests that the computer on which images does not come up automatically may lack adequate memory for handling the long, demanding sort of documents that my posts often are.)
You are receiving this email because you are on one of my lists of ruggies. Because there is some unavoidable overlap, you may receive more than one of these announcing emails. If you do, please just use your delete key. If you would prefer not to receive future announcements about such posts, please contact me at and I will remove your name from my listings.
I do not permit direct comments in this blog, and do not particularly encourage any, but if you have something that you feel is useful to share, you can send it to me at the email address above, with your permission to quote you should I decide to publish it.
I hope you enjoy this virtual version of a recent RTAM program.
