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.

“It is the nature of socially engaged art to present a project to a community while not knowing how it will be received or executed. It is an open question. The response to this project has exceeded our wildest expectations. Beyond the additional of a final show of all the fabric pages and a catalog book, each page is a gift to the community. 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.
