Warm, wearable art woven from silks and velours. Boldly colored, intricately structured blankets and throws.  And rugs that actually tell a story. 
 
February is the perfect month to cozy up with warm beautiful colors, and inviting textures that need to be touched to be appreciated.  And right now, the Artists’ Cooperative Gallery is full of them. 
 
This year’s annual visiting artist show welcomes the Westerly Weavers. Come meet them, and discover their vibrant, wide-ranging work, at the show’s Opening Reception, Friday, February 1, from 5-8 PM.  Their multi-textured work ranges from luxurious scarves and double weave shawls to versatile bags, wall hangings, and items for the home. 
 
You’ll also enjoy the favorite works of Coop artist members, in media ranging from vivid oils and photography to woodwork, hand-made jewelry, sculpture and more.

 

 

Experience the Craft and Art
of Weaving

Sunday, February 10

Join us for a hands-on weaving demonstration and workshop led by the Westerly Weavers. Come with a sense of adventure and experience weaving, or just watch as a design appears in the woven cloth. There will be several looms available to try: from free standing to tabletop.  In addition to weaving there will be demonstrations on laying up a warp to finishing scarf fringes, plus instruction on how to build a lap loom using a simple picture frame. This event promises to be a fun afternoon for all ages.
