The skyscrapers in Sheila O’Hara’s tapestry float mysteriously on a field of red. An abstract freeway flows through the buildings into a starry sky. Is this the future for San Francisco? This tapestry was on exhibit downtown, several years ago, long before the city plan and the new skyscrapers.
Here is another photo of Sheila’s work (a speeding motorcyclist):
Nite Flite is crafted of handwoven wool, cotton, rayon and lurex, and woven by Sheila on a computer-assisted loom called a compu-dobby.
