California Fibers Exhibit Opens at the Beatrice Wood Center for the Arts

Last Sunday, the most recent California Fibers exhibit opened at the Beatrice Wood Center for the Arts in Ojai, California...
The exhibit continues through March 30, with an artists panel planned for the closing day.

Michael F. Rohde's Labrang, Polly Jacobs Giacchina's Accumulated, Charlotte Bird's Habitat: Granite, Peggy Weidemann's Of the Same Beginnings, and Carol Lang's Orbital Moves.

The exhibit was juried by Kevin Wallace, seen here with Polly Jacobs Giacchina, after he juried the Soka University exhibition...
The exhibit includes a wide variety of fiber work, from crochet, through quilting, felted work, basketry, surface design, embroidery, weaving, wearables, and other mixed media.
