Art Daily: 'Designed & Hand-blocked by the Folly Cove Designers" opens at Cape Ann Museum
October 6, 2022
In early October, the Cape Ann Museum will open a new and expanded exhibition on the acclaimed Folly Cove Designers, made world famous by their leader, designer and author Virginia Lee Burton Demetrios. The exhibit draws from the museum's own collection as well as from other repositories in the region and private collections.
"Of the renowned artists who created lasting Cape Ann legacies, the Folly Cove Designers were foremost among them," said Oliver Barker, the Museum's director. "Their unique designs resonated locally and nationally, and their visionary leader, Virginia Lee Burton Demetrios, cultivated a strong group of predominantly women who have had a lasting imprint on textile and graphic design today. We are thrilled to offer this expanded exhibition so visitors can learn more about these designers and their important place in history."
