“Spinning Sewn Stories – Promulgate, Piece, & Ply” is a juried fiber arts exhibition that includes the creative and pluck feats of artistic declarations that persevere over challenges and leap beyond barriers to be produced and shared. These crafty and cunning creations tempt fate and fortune to be made and demonstrate how the artist will not be deterred and knows no limits. Fiber artworks of reinforced tales and yarns are spun from momentous consequences, family ties, and patched experiences. The choices artists make, the colors, patterns, topics, and materials, are part of the destiny they design for themselves while outwardly influencing hearts and minds asserting their unique artistic message and championing imaginative expression.
