“Vested Interests” Dancing Threads by Laura Lawrence

Laura’s Dancing Threads will feature some of her adventurous vest designs.  Come see her concept of “Vested Interests” upstairs in Studio 3 at the Art Center.  Pictured here is a Vest Combo which can be worn as a vest, a cape, a poncho, or a shawl, depending on how you configure–or just leave hanging–the 26 ties.

As always, visitors will find galleries, open studios, art, and artists on all three floors of the Art Center. On First Friday, there will also be refreshments and live music.

The special show in the Classroom this First Friday is a community art-making event. Join AAC artist Jo Ann Manzone and make needle felted squares. Using onion skins, avacado pits, and plums, Jo Ann eco-dyed wool that was donated to the Art Center last month. We are asking everyone to stop by the Classroom and create a one-of-a-kind square of felt, which will later be fused together with all the other unique squares to create a felted quilt. See you there!
