Lace at the MFA

I had the opportunity to view a little of the current exhibits at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston yesterday.  If you have the opportunity to go, there are a couple of exhibits with lace interest.  The current major exhibit, "Class Distinctions: Dutch Painting in the Age of Rembrandt and Vermeer" has a number of paintings with well depicted early bobbin lace.  The other exhibit with a very interesting contemporary lace piece that was brought to my attention by Doris May is "Crafted Objects in Flux".  Both are well worth the trip.  The first ends January 18.  The second ends January 10.
