New exhibit includes one of our own!

The Fiberexplorations group is proud to announce that one of its members, Erika Close, is a participating artist in a new gallery exhibit, Art at Zena, at the Bush Barn Art Center in Salem, OR.  We've been privileged to see Erika's quilted triptych evolve over the past several months, and now the public has the same opportunity.

The exhibit opens this Fri., March 11, with an artists' reception from 5:30 -7:30pm., and is on display until April 30.  Mark your calendar!
As part of Willamette University’s mis­sion to uti­lize their Zena For­est prop­erty for eco­log­i­cal and edu­ca­tional pur­poses, the Cen­ter for Sus­tain­able Com­mu­ni­ties invited a group of artists, writ­ers, pho­tog­ra­phers, and film­mak­ers to con­vene at Zena for one day in July 2010 and then cre­ate indi­vid­ual and/or group works based upon their expe­ri­ences. These works will be exhib­ited in the Camas Gallery as part of the Envi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion Agency’s National Sus­tain­abil­ity Month.  --  Salem Art Association news release
Congratulations, Erika!
