In support of INTERWOVEN, the Teleraña Fiber Arts exhibit at the Public Gallery
Local fiber artist Betz Frederick and her husband Harold will discuss the richness of Papua new Guinea's fiber arts, and present artifacts from their travels in Papua New Guinea. The fiber artists there incorporate the beauty of the natural environment of the southwest Pacific which is filled with cultural and biological diversity. The Fredericks will talk about Bilas and Bilums, decorative and basket weaving techniques using natural plants, dyes, and animal materials native to Papua New Guinea.
Join us for "mocktails" and light snacks at 5 pm in the Copper Gallery, before the presentation begins at 5:30 in the auditorium.
