Today was the felted purse program at the gallery. And all I can say is WOW, WOW, WOW! Ladies you truly out did yourself! Each purse was handmade and let's talk about TLC. I was truly blown away at how beautiful each and everyone of these purses came out! One participant even said, "Thanks so much for doing this program. It was so much fun! The best! I feel like a kid again"! Looks like more of these kind of programs will definitely be in our future!

Thanks again to Kathy Shanteau for leading us and helping us find our creative side!

Not Your Grandma's Fiber Show

Already the Free Press is calling this show Avant Guard. Join us this Sunday January 16th from 1-4PM for a champagne reception.

The exhibit features wall pieces, quilts, clothing, fiber sculptures and so much more. The pieces will have a couple of things in common — they will be avant-garde and ecclectic.

We want to give a whole new meaning to what fiber art is!!!

Brooks Harris Stevens, a guest curator from Eastern Michigan University, said fiber art is derived from the tradition of textile arts. It’s a flexible genre that doesn’t have to fit the dichotomy of being only functional or only decorative.

She will display her work, and EMU student's work based on concepts using textile materials and a diversity of techniques. “This keeps people interested, and at the same time, curious as to how things can be pushed further for the next piece,” she said.
Show Run January 16 - March 3
