April Art Crawl

Join me on a tour of the "Mini-Apple" fiber/art scene with my friends and members. This month we are starting at Susan Hensel Gallery for "A Reader's Art" book art exhibit. It is guest-curated by New York artist, Jon Coffelt, and features 51 artist ranging from the internationally renowned to the locally emerging. Next, we will jump across the river to the Textile Center to see Metaphoric Fibers: Untamed Knitting and Crochet. The artists featured in this exhibition take the traditional art of knitting and crochet beyond function into art abstraction. Steven has donated the award to the artist for the most unique use of materials. In addition, we will view the sweaters from Rowan's 30th Anniversary Collection now on display throughout the textile center. By this time, I'll be dying for some sustenance to maintain my fiber focus so we're going to stop at Cup Cake Inc. right next door! After we've filled up the tank and recharged the battery we're off to the Ax-man to discover the uncommon, unusual, and non-traditional knitting material. And of course, the final leg is back to StevenBe for Tuesday afternoon of creative frolic with our newly acquired knitting and crocheting materials.
