New Exhibition with Melanie Johnston and Joan Blade Johnson (Southbridge, MA)

Image
SAQA-CT artists Melanie Johnston and Joan Blade Johnson are very excited about their upcoming exhibit in nearby Southbridge, MA.  Melanie and Joan are joined by Sheila Rae Lutz for “TEXTURE”. Fiber is woven into the history of humankind. It shelters us, it carries us into the heavens, it sails us across seas to new discoveries, it warms our babes, and wipes our tears.   But it can also inspire, move our spirits, and cleanse our souls.  When it does that, it transcends into something unimaginably beautiful…into something that only our spirit can understand. Quinebaug Valley Council for the Arts and Humanities (QVCAH) is proud to have found three Fiber Artists who capture this very thing.  TEXTURE, a collection of fine fiber art, will be on exhibit in the galleries of QVCAH from March 28th through April 26th.   Please join them at the opening reception TODAY!  Saturday, March 28  4pm to 8pm.
