This is the second happening of the ongoing bi-monthly gathering for fiber-related artists. If you quilt, knit, crochet, weave, embroider, create macrame’, design clothing, do needlework, etc. – come on out to work on our projects alongside one another and meet other fiber-related artists. Makers of all skill levels are welcome! If you’d like to sketch or design; that’s welcome, too.
This showcase features the Best in Show artist of AVA's 2018 Juried Member Show, Arline Mann. Arline, a watercolorist, brings attention and fascination to everyday scenes of life with her realist work. On view May 3rd - June 14th. Corresponding with Arline's solo exhibit, Face It will be featured in the Landis Education Gallery. This showcase involves the AIM Center and looks through the eyes of people with mental illness. Doing so broadens our understanding of the spectrum of human experience; therein lies the value of this art, and the people that created it.
A continuation of last year’s competition involving a 5-day pop up show, this year's exhibition features multiple artists instead of one, judged and selected by AVA’s Chief Curator. We invite you to visit the gallery April 23rd - 27th to see the variety of themes and styles, and join us for the closing reception on April 26th!
This event is free and open to the public.
