FIBER ART EXHIBITION
For the fourth year, the Salida Fiber Festival is proud to present the annual Fiber Art Exhibition. The public is invited to the Grand Opening, scheduled for Friday, September 6th from 5:30PM-6:45PM, in the Paquette Gallery where attendees will be able to meet many of the exhibitors, vote for the People’s Choice Award, and after the awards ceremony, watch the free documentary.
The exhibition features fiber art in many forms, including spinning, knitting, weaving, dyeing, felting, sewing, beading, and repurposing. Entries come from local fiber artists and vendors at this year’s festival, and are both 2-D and 3-D in form.
FIBER FESTIVAL FILM
Each year a film is screened after the Fiber Art Exhibition.
The film for 2019 is Interlacements: Threads & Lives
“Hand-weaving interweaves lives, not just threads. Five stories that focus on the weaving of social fabric: the connections built between weavers and the people who use and cherish their cloth.”
