Don’t miss the opening reception for our new show,
The Milkweed Project and Other Flawless Fibers!
This exciting fiber and textile exhibition opens this Friday, January 14.
The Milkweed Project (above) is a collaborative artwork made up of approximately 150 objects created by several hundred artists and crafters from 30 states and 10 countries. It is a main highlight of the show. Participants from the U.S. and around the world have contributed works that are knitted, felted, crocheted and woven. They became a part of one artwork that is intended to capture the essence of a milkweed pod; its soft, ethereal beauty and its importance to the natural world. The artwork was conceived of and organized by Shan Bryan-Hansen. To learn more about the project, visit http://sticksandstitches.squarespace.com.
Other nationally-recognized textile artists, including Alison Gates (Above image: Neither Created nor Destroyed), Jennifer Hunold, and Mindy Sue Wittock, contribute non-traditional textile and fiber pieces that make this exhibition one not to be missed. Sculpture, basketry, quilting, embroidery, weaving, sewing, crocheting, felting, and knitting will be represented.
Join us for the opening reception on Friday, January 14, 5:00 – 8:00 pm. The event is free and open to the public and refreshments will be served. The exhibition runs through February 28.
