The Fiber of Our Lives: Why Textiles Matter

Opening Night! Looming Elections: Woven Works

It was a full house for the opening of 
Looming Elections: Woven Works
Saturday night June 16.

The Study Center was filled warp and weft with fiber artists and textile admirers alike.
Cameron Taylor-Brown drew a tight crowd for her lecture and video presentation.
We were thrilled to have three of the show participants present for the talk and opening:
 Cameron, Michael Rohde and Consuelo Jimenez Underwood.
