Rare Threads: Ancestral Inspirations
Rare Threads, JRAC's biennial juried fiber exhibit, opens Sunday, September 18. Plan to attend the reception on that date from 1:00-4:00 PM to launch this colorful and diverse show. The exhibit will be open daily from 1:00-4:00 PM through October 23. Over sixty pieces of fiber art have been selected, representing the work of thirty five artists, for this ninth Rare Threads. On display will be quilting, weaving, knitting, crochet, embroidery, and more. Some pieces are vintage textiles while many others are contemporary creations inspired by family heirlooms. If you enjoy fibers and history, don't miss "Ancestral Inspirations!"
