Art From Scrap (AFS) has issued a Call for Artists for its November fiber arts show Dream Weavers & Embroiderers of Truth. Open to fiber arts in any media, the new show will highlight the work of gifted local fiber artists and cohorts from further afield.
Art Intake will take place noon-3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2. This is a juried show and jurying will focus on creating a cohesive exhibit showcasing a variety of fiber techniques. Due to space limitations, not all pieces will be included in the exhibit.
Artists having a very large piece or installation should contact Art From Scrap in advance by emailing Rachel@ExploreEcology.org.
Opening reception for Dream Weavers & Embroiderers of Truth is 6-8 p.m. Friday Nov. 15.
Located above the Art From Scrap Creative ReUse Store, the AFS Gallery hours are 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
Since 1990, Art From Scrap has diverted thousands of pounds of clean, reusable items from the landfill. AFS accepts donations of used and new materials from businesses and individuals.
