THIS WEEKEND IN TUBAC
Spend a weekend in Tubac,
where art and history meet.
Please join us on Friday, October 18th from 5-7pm for the opening reception of “Threads” – Contemporary Fiber Art.
“Threads” is an exhibition that presents the versatility and innovative use of fiber in contemporary art. Historically, fiber art has been viewed as “women’s work”, sewing, knitting, crocheting, quilting. Contemporary artists have moved beyond the gender specific perceptions with innovative approaches to using fiber materials in art. Juror, Kay Khan of Santa Fe, NM has selected art from entries across the country creating a diverse exhibit from wall hangings to sculpture to large scale installations. Artists from twenty different states are represented in this exhibit.
