Exhibition Title: Timeless Fibers 2016
This exhibition is open to members of the Weavers’ Guild of St. Louis.  The title refers to our intention to celebrate both the talented guild artists of the last ninety years as well as the vision of the current generation of guild fiber artists as they embrace new techniques.   Work by the current generation will be on display in The Gallery while a digital presentation on the gallery’s new 55” screen will commemorate the past 90 years of the guild.  All fiber techniques are welcome. 

Jury Process:
