Women in Fiber Art—1919-2019

First Presbyterian Church, 50 Church Street, downtown Asheville NC 28801

Presented by Local Cloth Inc.

Curated by: Resident Artists Karen Donde and Joan Berner

Following in the tradition of Bauhaus-trained, Black Mountain College instructor Anni Albers, and other Southern Appalachian women who led the modern hand-weaving and fiber arts revival, Local Cloth presents an exhibit of clothing and fiber art by women from our region who continue to push the boundaries of fiber art materials and techniques.

Celebrating both Women’s History Month and 100 Years of Bauhaus, the women featured in Women in Fiber Art—1919-2019, will be teaching fiber art classes at Local Cloth’s Asheville studio in 2019, helping ensure continuation of the region’s rich textile traditions of the Southern Appalachians.
