Norma could answer that question Norma greets everyone at the door and gives out name tags.  Norma is our membership chair and she keeps track of attendance at every event.  Thank you Norma!

The beloved tradition continues every January it’s time to Clean out your studio and bring what you don’t want with a delicious dish to PCA.  BUT this year for the first time we held it on a Saturday.  Times they are a changing it’s harder and harder to schedule a day off, find a sitter or manage your own hours to be able to squeeze in a lunch with fellow fiber enthusiasts on a week-day.   But on the week-end?  ___ gathered together and brought all types o’ stuff gleaned from the studio.

Construct Opening Night

Why fiber now? 

It’s the question contemporary fiberartists wrestle with, however subconsciously, every time they set to work. Why express my ideas with these methods and materials – often rooted in ancient, labor-intensive crafts – when there are so many easier, speedier alternatives? What am I building… and what am I building on?

Left A Thousand Bats by Mary Towner

CONSTRUCT, the most recent FGP members’ show, seeks to explore these issues and show off some pretty spectacular artwork in the process. Juror Sandra Jane Heard, winner of the Fiberart International 2013 Directors’ Award, set herself the goal of selecting a “provocative and intriguing breadth of work.” Not satisfied with creating a “cohesive and stimulating experience,” Heard wanted the show to bowl the viewer over with a sense of the “diversity and creativity” pulsing through fiberart today. No problem. Our artists are so up to the task!More Information
