Great collections are often the results of one man's inspiration and determination. Such is the collection of nineteenth-century textiles brought together by artist-collector Jack Silverman. eng_about_1His goal has been simple: to assemble the finest examples of early Pueblo and Navajo textiles and pottery that he could find. By traveling throughout the world searching for and carefully buying and trading textiles, Silverman has developed a collection that is stunningly impressive.
 
He has created archival studies of his collection of textiles. Employing a multiple layer technique of silkscreening, he achieves the illusion of woven texture. Through his serigraphs, posters and artcards, Silverman seeks to document and disseminate the beauty of his collection.
