The Tapestry of Talent Fiber Art Fashion show, a fundraiser for the SW Women's Fiber Arts Collective (SWFAC) features wearable fiber art and accessories. The fiber art fashions made by members of SWFAC showcase one-of-a-kind designs constructed especially for the event. The show will be held Saturday, April 6, 2024 at 2 pm with doors opening at 1:30 pm at the historic Silco Theater located at 311 N. Bullard St. in downtown Silver City. Funds raised by the event will go to support classes, outreach to the community, and sales events.
“SWFAC was founded in 2005 to provide rural fiber artists a means to earn income, share fiber art skills with others and promote fiber art as a cottage industry. Throughout the years, we have gone to shows across the state, had a gallery, and now focus on pop-up events, our annual fiber art show and the Tapestry of Talent fashion show fundraiser,” states Colette Kelly board member. “We currently have fifty-four members and are growing. Many women are taught fiber art skills as youth and these skills now provide additional income.”

Sean Gaskell features songs on the kora- a 21 stringed West African harp. As a student of the instrument, he studied under the instruction of two musicians at their home in Brikama, Gambia, over multiple extensive visits. The kora is traditionally played by oral historians known as Griots. Many songs featured on the kora preserve an 800 year history dating back to the founding of the Mande empire. Gaskell has presented adult, youth and family programs at over 350 libraries and a multitude of k-12 schools, colleges, universities and assisted living facilities throughout the United States and Canada.
