"Lasting impressions of the beauty and grandeur of the Grand Canyon and images of the Southwest with the stunningly simple compositions of sky, country and architecture have greatly influenced my work," writes Klaus Anselm, weaver of bold fine art tapestries and new Exhibitor at the Crozet Spring Arts and Crafts Festival. Formerly a medical doctor, Anselm took up weaving after his retirement. His tapestries have been shown in Fine Art Galleries and Fiber Shows around the United States.
