NEW YORK — A new art gallery is opening in a downtown building that once housed the largest collection of Viking sewing and textile work in the world.
Walden Gallery is located at 16 Broadway, a building that was once home to the largest and largest collection in the United States of Viking and Icelandic crafts, and it has a permanent display of works by many of the artists featured in this year’s Viking Sewing Gallery exhibit.
In addition to the Viking Sewings Gallery, Waldan Gallery also has a large and permanent display devoted to the life and art of artists and designers in New York, including artists and artists of the Nordic-style.
The exhibition, called Waldonas Viking Sewers and Cotton, is set to open to the public on Saturday.
Artists, designers and craftspeople of all ages and backgrounds will exhibit their work on Saturday to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Viking society, the Vikings’ migration to the New World and the birth of the New York City-based textile industry.
The exhibition is open to anyone and has already attracted a large number of visitors, including New York Times writer Anne Sullivan, whose piece for the exhibit is titled, “The Life and Art of an Artist.”
For the past year, the gallery has been housed at a historic historic building in downtown Manhattan that was formerly home to an old textile company called Warka, and was once the largest textile shop in the country.
A total of 12,000 pieces of Viking-inspired clothing were made in Warkas textile factory from 1680 to the present day, including the finest fabrics and wool and silk clothing in the history of the Viking nation.
