Grete Schioler is a weaver and fiber artist living in Dayton, Ohio. Born and raised in Denmark, she and her husband settled in Ohio in the early 1950s. She studied fashion design in Denmark, but in the United States began to study weaving and other textile techniques. Her works can be seen in many public buildings and private collections.

The Danish Immigrant Museum is proud to present this retrospective exhibition. The works on view encompass a wide range of Schioler's art, including tapestry, silk painting, quilting, appliqu̩ and knitting. Some express her experience as a Danish immigrant, such as a silk painting that incorporates the lyrics of a Danish folk song. Others works reflect Schioler's interest in color, texture, and contours of both the man-made and natural environment.
