the Mission Statement...

"The exhibit 'Reflections of the Conquest' is intended to act as an accompaniment to the Woodstock Museums display of the reproduction of the Bayeux Tapestry by J. Raymond Dugan. The exhibit is focused on how contemporary artisans have drawn inspiration from the Bayeux Tapestry specifically, and also from the culture and artifacts of the period from 1000 to 1100 AD within Northern Europe. Sub-themes to this exhibit are how historical artifacts can influence the creative process, and how the use of traditional methods and forms increases our understanding of the past. The objective of the exhibit is to bring the work of contributing artists to the attention of the general public."
