To Monday, May 31, 2021

The Southwest Women’s Fiber Arts Collective is proud to announce their upcoming show titled “Focus on Fiber: Pursuing Creativity in the Pandemic”. Local fiber artists have been very busy this past year creating new and exciting work that will be on display May 17 - 31, 2021 at 200 W. Market Street in Silver City.

More than a dozen fiber artists will have their new work available for viewing, with some of the pieces available for purchase on the Collective’s website. Fiber artists will be demonstrating their individual crafts on each of the two weekends of the show, from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm and from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. It's a great opportunity to see a variety of fiber art techniques.

Fiber art techniques that will be demonstrated are weaving, spinning, Sashiko embroidery, felting, knitting, quilting, and silk painting. The Collective will be announcing the demonstration schedule in upcoming news releases.

Artists whose work will be on display include: Mary Ragins, Jean Hill, Susan Porter, Charmeine Wait, Pat Bouchard, Vicki Gadberry, Suzi Calhoun, Blythe Whiteley, Donna Foley, Kathy Cole, Hosana Eilert, Cookie Murraye, Shannon Wilson, Liza Kuecker, Sharon Brown and Lynnae McConaha.

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.
