Artist’s Reception: Tuesday, October 15 from 2 – 4 p.m
Fibre art pieces inspired by the unusual items the artist’s father saved and organized in his workshop during the past 60 + years. The items have been re-imagined and incorporated into fibre art pieces which express lessons learned from a father and thoughts about life and beauty. Come and share your own experiences with saved and found items, collections, life events that require the giving up of objects, and your experiences of re-imagining or reconsidering life.
