The Tennessee Sampler Survey is pleased to announce its traveling exhibit, Tennessee Samplers: 19th Century Schoolgirl Embroidery.
The exhibit will be on view at Rose Center, from September 12 through October 5. The exhibit has been touring the state for the past year. After leaving the Rose Center, it will travel to the Latta Visitors and Cultural Center in Selmer, McNairy County.
Since 2004, the Tennessee Sampler Survey has been documenting 19th century embroidery. Twenty Tennessee samplers were selected for the exhibit, each from a different county. The exhibit presents the samplers on full-sized panels; the actual samplers are not part of this exhibit due to their fragility. Five text panels, explaining the work of the Tennessee Sampler Survey and the regional characteristics of the samplers, are also part of the exhibit.
The Rose Center is open from 9 AM to 5 PM Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday and from 9 AM to 7:30 PM on Thursday. There is no admission fee. The exhibit is on display in the Jean Keener Community Room and the office. The Rose Center is located at 442 W. Second North Street in Morristown.
