Irvin and Lisa Trujillo will hold a joint exhibition of their woven tapestries at the Joan Derryberry Art Gallery at Tennessee Tech University from Monday, March 12, until Thursday, April 5.

Irvin Trujillo combines the traditional Rio Grande weaving styles of his forefathers with his vision and interpretations of Hispanic history and culture, as well as current events and his own life.

Lisa Trujillo began weaving after marrying Irvin. She incorporates her study of historic textiles into her work and has begun combining the styles of different periods into one piece.

Their award-winning work has been exhibited extensively nationally and internationally.

The artists will conduct a weaving workshop from 1:15 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. Wednesday, April 4, in the weaving studio at the TTU Appalachian Center for Craft.

The Trujillos will give a brief gallery talk at 11 a.m. Thursday, April 5, in the Joan Derryberry Art Gallery in the TTU Roaden University Center. At 3 p.m. that day, the artists will give a more extensive lecture about their works in Bryan Fine Arts room 374.
