Fiber Fest Kickoff Reception & Films
September 9, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
The Salida Fiber Festival, now in its eleventh year, is thrilled to present its seventh annual Fiber Art Exhibition, open to fiber artists residing within 50 miles of Salida or 2022 festival vendors. The exhibition, which will open during the weekend of the festival, September 8-11, and continue through September, will be mounted in the Paquette Gallery at the Salida SteamPlant and is open to original designs in all forms of fiber art.
A reception takes place beginning at 5:30 pm, where you can view and vote on some of the pieces in the exhibition, then take in two unique documentaries highlighting special fiber arts:
- TRACING ROOTS – A Master Weaver’s journey to understand a spruce root hat found in a retreating glacier.
- EVERY FIBER – Follows Celeste Malvar-Stewart, a couture designer with a focus on merging fashion with sustainability and intentionality.
Open to the public
