Opening Reception for A Dyeing Art: Contemporary Textiles and Fiber Arts


october 15 ∙ 5-8pm

during Art Walk

A Dyeing Art: Contemporary Textiles and Fiber Arts is a group exhibition featuring the work of nine artists. Curated as an homage to Spartanburg’s history with the textile industry, the work in this exhibition covers a wide array of textile-related media and techniques, including quilted paintings, wall drawings, fiber sculptures, and felt installations. The themes addressed by these artists vary from the whimsy of childhood to the juxtaposition of multiple cultures to the importance of community involvement in the arts.

Join us for a special opening reception in honor of this new exhibition on October 15 from 5-8pm. Light refreshments will be served. Event is free and open to the public.
