Interwoven Stories Community Stitching Project Participants
October 29 - November 30
Friday, 11/25 – 10am-4pm
Saturday, 11/26 – 10am-3pm
Interwoven Stories is a community-based narrative stitching project created and facilitated by Diana Weymar, the Arts Council’s 2016 Artist-in-Residence. More than 100 3-hole fabric pages, stitched with memories, places, and people, will be assembled together for this one time group show.

They speak to the generosity, diversity, spirit, commitment and creativity of this community.”
-Diana Weymar, Interwoven Stories creator and curator
View the Interwoven Stories exhibition, on view from 10/29 through 11/30, and let the pages speak for themselves. They are, quite simply, works of art that speak to the soul.
