It’s almost time for Mena Art Gallery’s annual Fiber Arts Show, so if you are working in any sort of fiber (knitting, crochet, weaving, and embroidery are the most common, but the show will not be limited to these) plan to enter your work in this show. Entries should be brought to the gallery, 607 Mena Street. Work will be accepted on Wednesday, February 4 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you can’t make this date, you can call the gallery at 479-394-3880 during regular gallery hours (11 am to 2 pm Tuesdays, 10 am to 3 pm Wednesdays through Saturdays) to see if you can make arrangements to bring your work in earlier.
You can download an entry form from the gallery website: www.MenaArtGallery.org. Click on “Fiber” in the left-hand menu.
If you would like to learn more, stop by on Fridays between 1 and 3 pm when a group of fiber artists meet to work and learn from each other. On any given Friday, you may find spinning, weaving, knitting, crochet, embroidery, and occasionally twining (a process for making rugs of strips of fabric). They’re a friendly bunch and always open to questions. If you have time, bring your work with you and join the party. And watch this paper for details of all the classes and demos that will take place during the month of February that the exhibit is on display.
