Rowen Schussheim-Anderson

We have several works by Rowen in our collection at The Current:

From left to right: Marrakesh Express, Peruvian Canvas, New Balance, all are mixed media tapestries, varying dimensions

Rown Schussheim-Anderson is a Quad Cities local, and has been pushing the boundaries of traditional tapestry weaving for over two decades. Schussheim-Anderson’s tapestries explore the power of textiles as bearers of meaning—thick embellished warps tangled and rich with the cultures she has been influenced by. One of her more recent focuses has been incorporating beads and beaded strands into her tapestries. Through her studies and vast travel abroad, she uses traditions from different cultures to accompany colors and techniques to inform these contemporary tapestries.

Fun Fact: Rowen Schussheim-Anderson has been a Professor in the Department of Art at Augustana College in Rock Island, IL since 1982
