SW Women's Fiber Arts Collective Demonstration

Download as iCal file

 

Saturday, May 29, 2021, 02:00pm - 04:00pm
     

On Saturday, May 29, 2021 from 2 pm to 4 pm, Blythe Whiteley will demonstrate silk painting and Mary Ragins will weave on a table loom.

Blythe Whiteley has been painting silk for over 20 years, using various techniques and types of silk. She will demonstrate the gutta silk painting method, a quick color mixing (using the basics of red, yellow, blue, and black to achieve any color desired ) and a bit of textural tricks.

Mary Ragins has been creating with fiber as a weaver for the past decade. Sewing with her handwoven fabric and making one of a kind functional objects is one of her favorite ways to add an extra layer of joy to pulling cloth off of her loom. Mary is on the Board of Directors of Southwest Women's Fiber Arts Collective, and has taught Rigid Heddle Weaving at Wild West Weaving in Silver City.

The exhibit would not have been possible without the community minded owners of the building, Marsha Sue Lustig and John Eder who have generously donated the space. Lustig and Eder reached out to Silver City MainStreet to see how the space could be used. A Pop-up gallery space was suggested and now the former retail space is being used to benefit the community. 

Due to COVID-19, there will be no in-person contact, however, this is a wonderful opportunity to see first-hand the creativity that is still thriving in Silver City and support our local fiber artists. The exhibit can be viewed through the expansive windows.
