Don’t Miss India: An Exhibition of Photographs of Textiles from the Subcontinent

San Francisco Bay Area antique rug and textile dealer Thomas Cole, who is also an accomplished photographer, has travelled to India several times in recent years, camera in hand. Selections from his photographs have been published on his website, via social media, and in a series of gallery exhibits in Marin County. His third and latest photographic show, ‘Don’t Miss India’, a blend of antique textile art from the subcontinent with, in his words, ‘timeless’ images of India, opens on Sunday June 23. For further details see below.
