The ATA Web Gallery is pleased to present the second in a series of in-depth portraits of distinguished tapestry weavers called Work Over Time. The intent of the Work Over Time series is to offer viewers a virtual look at a tapestry weaver’s entire career in both text and image, an opportunity not often afforded in the real world.

This focus of this exhibit is Ukrainian-born Chicago artist Lialia Kuchma, who has been and continues to be a major force in both Chicago’s Ukrainian community and in the Chicago textile art community. She began weaving in 1975.
