The Art of Fiber...Celebrating Fifty Years of the Handweavers Guild of Boulder
A series of events is being planned for this grand occasion: special guild programs, a luncheon with prominent speaker, and especially an exhibition at the Dairy Center for the Arts fromDec 5, 2014-Jan 16, 2015. The exhibit will include both a historical time line showing the evolution of the guild and an invitational segment featuring renowned guild artists. The juried portion of this exhibit is open to all current and former guild members to enter, and the prospectus and entry form can be found at handweaversofboulderentry.org or at ArtCallforentry.com.
This is a great opportunity to participate in the show and highlight the guild's creativity and talent.
