A Life in Tapestry: Trudie Strobel

Featuring the art work of a Holocaust Survivor

One of our Dragon Challenge finalists will be continuing their work with the Fellowship with the Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena.  Project leaders Maya Savin and Lila Dworsky-Hickey curated a debut exhibition for tapestry artist, Trudie Strobel.  Trudie’s artwork is not only exquisite, but is also a reflection of her time as a holocaust survivor.  This exhibit will be moved to the Armory December 2020 by request of the gallery.  We’re so proud of you both, and can’t wait to see this artwork in a new location!\
