About the Class or Event

“Exploring the World of Fibers!” marks the recent transformation of the LexArt Weavers Guild into the Weaving & Fiber Arts Guild. To celebrate the broadening of their mission, the LexArt artists invited participation from other local and regional weaving guilds and fiber artists.  The exhibition “beautifully represents the breadth, vibrancy, and innovation of this region’s fiber artists,” said juror Beth McLaughlin, Interim Director, Artistic Director, and Chief Curator of the Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton.

Our Opening Reception will be virtual.  Join us for socializing at 2:00 pm.  At 2:30, we'll hear a gallery talk on “Why Tapestry” by Julia Mitchell. Mitchell is a designer and weaver with 55 years’ experience. Her talk will focus on the arc of her work from the 1970’s to present, and how and why she became a tapestry designer. Mitchell will cover some of the artists and others who have influenced her, and what it means to be an artist working in fiber.
