Dream Weaver Frida by Dawn Wyse Hurto and Liz Martinez

Join us at Del Ray Artisans from November 2-25, 2018 for the Connecting Threads art exhibit to celebrate fiber and how it connects us to the stories of our lives.

Fiber art communicates some sort of message, emotion, or meaning and goes beyond the literal definition of the materials. This exhibit focuses on fiber art and fiber’s influence through other mediums as well. Artists are showcasing their traditional and non-traditional ways to manipulate fiber (e.g. knitting, crocheting, amigurumi, felting, weaving, stitching, mixed media, etc.) and highlighting narratives where textiles and fiber trigger nostalgia or comfort.

Meet some of the artists and enjoy the live music by Bill Cabrera at the opening reception on Friday, November 2 from 7-9pm at Del Ray Artisans. Four Artist Awards will be presented during the opening reception. Special thanks to Artistic Artifacts for sponsoring the awards and to MCD Mateos, McDonald’s for sponsoring the reception.
