Cocoon: Fibers of Home

We have now put our Spring 2021 exhibition, Cocoon, online as a virtual tour!

Click HERE to experience the exhibition.

About the exhibition:

Artists gain inspiration from many different avenues, one of the most predominant being their surroundings. In a time where most of us are spending more time than ever at home, it is only natural for inspiration to be drawn from the domestic surroundings of our living spaces.

Home is a place of comfort, and it is arguably your most personal space. This show is focused on honoring those personal spaces and showcasing individual vulnerability through fiber art. 

Cocoon: Fibers of Home features twelve regional or national artists; Annabel Biernat, Darden Bradshaw, Denise Burge, Casey Dressell, Katherine Gibson, Heather Jones, Genevieve Lavalle, Maggie Myers, Eden Quispe, Ann Rebele, Kate Spencer, Emily Van Walleghen.
