Lee Street Studios’ fiber artists exhibit opening this Friday, 11/2
Lewisburg, WV – Lee Street Studios invites the public to a free opening reception in celebration of a new fiber arts exhibit in the Main Gallery. Friday, November 2 from 5:00 pm until 8:00 pm visitors have the opportunity to view the work of the Studio 2 Fiber Arts Cooperative while enjoying light appetizers and wine.
The artists participating in the exhibit-Janet Anderson, Debbie Rapp, Anne Gardner, Susan Ernst, Susie Smead, Linda Wells-are weavers, spinners, needle felters, knitters & crocheters. Combined, the group boasts over 75 years of experience working in the medium of fiber. Four of the participating artists are also members of the Fiber Arts Network, a collaboration of fiber artists who meet and teach workshops at Carnegie Hall.
“Some of our members raise, harvest, spin and dye their own fiber. Others purchase manufactured fibers,” says Susan Ernst, a resident artist and accomplished weaver.
The exhibit will include large works such as rugs as well as smaller crafts: mittens, tea towels, scarves, hats, and ornaments. All work will be available for purchase, and the exhibit will offer numerous items appropriate for holiday shopping.
